Resource Links and Videos

NECA is constantly working to update our safety tools and resources to include the latest industry standards and regulations issued by consensus and regulatory entities. These resources include valuable tools and products that help members and industry professionals to stay successful when managing their company's safety programs by providing exclusive training material for their employees.

Mobile Apps

NECA unveiled the Safety Meeting app to help contractors develop an internal safety program within their company. This app has incorporated all of the NECA toolbox talks for both wiremen and linemen. It also provides real time information about on the job safety meetings and stores all documentation in the “Cloud” so management can retrieve this information electronically back in the office.  Since its release, revisions to the app have been made to have separate multi-user groups within one company and to provide PDF checklists for job site inspections and job briefings. In 2019 new provisions were added to allow direct emailing of reports to desired recipients.

We also provide an NFPA 70E based Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Selector Guide and mobile app for employees to properly understand and select the right garments and rubber protective devices to use to stay safe. The NECA PPE Selector app is available for mobile devices in the Apple Store and Google Play.
