Promoting a Safe Work Environment
The Safety Culture at Hunt Electric begins at the top with a strong management commitment to a safe work environment. This is strategically coupled with our Safety Policies and Procedures, our focused safety training processes, financial and human resource allocations and field reference handbook to guide safety in our day to day operations.

The Hunt Electric Safety Program begins in the planning stages of every project. Project Managers are trained to identify safety concerns and each project is reviewed by our Safety Director to make sure controls are in place for identified hazards. Our Safety team assures our employees comply with not only the Hunt Electric safety policies, but also with the customer's procedures and government regulations. We then continue the focus on safety at the jobsite through our Jobsite Supervisors.


A construction site, by nature, is ever changing throughout the duration of the project. The “F.O.C.U.S” risk assessment form used by each employee is completed daily. Jobsite Supervisors routinely inspect the jobsite to identify new hazards or changing conditions and drive proactive measures to mitigate safety risks.



We promote a strong culture of safety and employee wellness. Our focus on enhanced safety processes supports an overall company culture of accident prevention through a proactive safety promotion and a culture of repetitive review and desire for improvement. Hunt partners with its customers and other subcontractors to promote a safe worksite for all. All Hunt Electric employees are required to participate in pre-employment, random and post-accident drug testing.

We conduct operations with the utmost regard for the safety of our employees, our customers, the public and the environment. Through a strong focus on safety and continuously improving our employee’s understanding of our safety practices, Hunt Electric stands out in the industry with a remarkable safety history:
