It's a risky business
Electrical work is dangerous, especially when proper precautions are not taken.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), "Electrocutions are the fourth leading cause of death among construction workers in the United States, accounting for an average of 143 fatalities per year."
Hanley Energy Electrical takes electrical safety very seriously. Since our inception, we have promoted safer practices and procedures throughout the industry.
We believe that safety does not begin and end with us, though; our customers also need to be safe.

Our consulting services can be tailored to any business, and include best practices centered on industry thought leaders, such as OSHA, BCSP, and NFPA.

We offer practicable precautions
Workplace safety benefits everyone.
Electrical injuries can be fatal, often involving an electrical current passing through an individual's skin or body. They typically fall into four categories: flash, flame, lightning, and true. Each varies in severity and has different causes.
Thankfully, nearly every electrical injury is preventable.
Workplace safety benefits everyone. We offer safety consulting that encompasses common hazards and something we like to call "practicable precautions." These are preventative measures that anyone can take, in any situation. Our consulting services also cover proper procedures, such as how to handle and operate certain types of electrical equipment.
Safety can do more than save lives; it can also boost careers. At HEE, we offer guidance in many technical areas so that you can expand your skillset while staying safe.
Never fail an inspection
An OSHA inspection may not be the highlight of your week, but we can ensure that it doesn't ruin it.
At HEE, we know that these inspections can negatively impact on your business if you aren't prepared. Our safety consultants understand the ins and outs of OSHA compliance, as well as the citations that keep you up at night. We'll make sure your employees can detect frequent pitfalls and avoid them - all while staying safe.
Learn what you want
Some certifications, like the NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, are not required to meet OSHA's electrical safety standards. We believe that they all have a place, though, and can be valuable to workers in many fields.
If you are looking to train your staff on a specific requirement - or you aren't sure where to start - just let us know! We can develop a customized safety program that meets the unique needs of your organization.
