ELMIRA HEIGHTS, NEW YORK – April 18, 2018 – John Mills Electric, a full-service electrical contracting company, headquartered in Elmira Heights, New York announced today that it has received the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) 2018 Safety Excellence Award.
John Mills Electric has been serving the Southern Tier area since 1946, specializing in the design, installation, service and repair of electrical systems for residential and commercial customers. The company has grown from 6 initial employees with sales of $600,000 to a company today with sales in excess of $25 million, and depending on needs, employing as many as 200 staff and technicians.
NECA’s Safety Excellence Award program is a national safety recognition industry staple focused on recognizing thriving companies that excel in multiple areas of their safety and health programs. Awards are given to member companies that consistently have OSHA-recordable injury and fatality rates at levels lower than the industry standard, and implement internal company safety practices above and beyond basic compliance. Winners are selected based on their comparison to BLS data and electrical contractors.
For 2018, John Mills Electric was one of only five New York electrical contractors in the over 150,000 man-hour category to earn the award. "John Mills Electric has always been and will remain committed to job site safety and ensuring a safe working environment for our employees," said Lindsay Mills, president of John Mills Electric. "All of our electricians have completed the OSHA 10 course and all of our field supervision and project managers have completed the OSHA 30 course. I am very proud that we have received this NECA award again. Workplace safety will always be the top priority of our company."
John Mills Electric previously received this NECA award in 2015, and has received several other prestigious awards through the years for their continued focus and improvements on safety.
