Accidents Are Preventable

Sisters and Brothers,

I just wanted to take a moment and talk about safety. Back before the IBEW was founded, 1 out of 2 electricians were killed on the job. Henry Miller and 9 others decided they needed to do something about this. Our IBEW was founded on safety. Today safety is still the most important part of working. With the large amount work and constantly bringing in new members it is extremely important that we mentor the new members. If we do this, we are truly “our brother and sister’s keeper.” Please take the time to look after each other. When you look out for other people safety, your safety increases because you are more aware. Don’t have the regret of knowing you saw something unsafe and didn’t do anything. Don’t wait for someone to get hurt. Please take time to read “Accidents ARE Preventable.”

In closing, it is an honor to serve you all. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. May God bless and keep you, yours and our IBEW safe.

Yours in Brotherhood,
