OSHA may visit visit your worksite to inspect your safety protocols. IEC National has worked with IES to provide a procedure your company may adopt, to ensure that you pass all inspections. It also informs you of your rights and responsibilities during OSHA's visit. The procedure contains a checklist to follow during an OSHA inspection as well as guidelines to follow during and after.

The SPARK program is a tool for IEC members to evaluate their safety program by giving it a “safety check-up.” IEC National will present those companies that rate themselves Grand Achievement, Superior Achievement or SPARK Achievement with a SPARK Recognition Certificate.

The IEC-CNA Safety Award recognizes members that excel beyond OSHA recordable incidence rates. Award criteria takes into account the following safety program components - management commitment; safety committee participation; investigation of incidents/near miss; employee involvement; work site auditing for unsafe acts and conditions; recognition of safe actions and recordable rates.

While safety programs are intended to prevent injury and harm, in a few instances the worst occurs. For materials and resources on what to do when there is an employee death, IEC has developed a revised section of the Safety Manual Guidelines and information on how to train your employees on what to do. These member-only resources can be found HERE.
In a new letter of interpretation publically released on April 5, 2013, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced for the first time that during an OSHA inspection of non-union worksites, employees can be represented by anyone selected by the employees, including outside union agents.

CNA's new workers' compensation brochure outlines the four elements to CNA's approach:
- Building a safety culture.
- Understanding workplace and workforce risks.
- Improving productivity by applying lean principles to safety.
- Employing an injury management strategy with a focus on return to work.
The brochure helps customers understand why taking a proactive approach to workplace safety and injury management can have a positive impact on their bottom line and shares valuable information about establishing a workers' compensation strategy.
Through the OSHA and Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) Alliance, IEC developed a fact sheet to provide the electrical industry with information about the updates OSHA made to CFR 29 1910 Subpart S-Electrical Standard. (2007, September; updated 2011, January)
Through the OSHA and Independent Electrical Contractors, Inc. (IEC) Alliance, IEC developed the 240/120 Volt Single-Phase Electrical - Work Safety Program to document increased awareness of the hazards involved in working on or near energized electrical conductors and circuit parts. This document describes precautions that can be taken to minimize the dangers associated with working on energized/hot electrical power (2011, June).
Through the OSHA and Independent Electrical Contractors, Inc. (IEC) Alliance, IEC developed the "Electrical Safety in the Workplace (NFPA 70E) PowerPoint Training Presentation." This presentation is designed to provide the electrical industry with information about the updates OSHA made to CFR 29 1910 Subpart S-Electrical Standard. It focuses on topics such as hot work and arc flash. (2013, April)
IEC has produced the seventh edition of the Jobsite Safety Handbook. This pocket-sized handbook contains over 100 pages dealing with safety regulations and best practices. Written in English with Spanish translations, this handbook will assist supervisors trying to convey safety messages to their workers.
The Safety Manual Guidelines are a practical guide for owners and management in the techniques of managing safe operations in all aspects of the electrical industry. The Safety Manual Guidelines are divided into sections to provide direction and instructions for administering and implementing a safety and accident prevention program so that IEC members can achieve a safer and healthier work environment.
