MES Consulting Group
MES Consulting Group, Inc. believes that electrical safety in the workplace must be an integral part of all job assignments and processes including construction and maintenance activities. We have found that focusing on safety rather than just compliance is the most effective way to achieve both, while improving staff morale and maximizing their productivity.
The electrical safety program is the foundation for worker safety. If an electrical safety program does not address all of the safety issues pertaining to job assignments at a facility it could have a significant negative impact on a company’s operation, financial position and status in the business community. Additionally, if the electrical safety program is not comprehensive, the safety training based on the electrical safety program is inadequate.
Our firm offers comprehensive consultation services to assist customers to develop and/or enhance their present electrical safety program.
