Progressive Electric, Inc. provides “Progressive Service,” a proven and unique electrical preventative maintenance service focused on minimizing both unexpected power outages and potential fire hazards while enhancing customer productivity and profitability by reducing downtime and repair expenses. Electrical preventative maintenance is the best and most cost-effective protection against sudden power outages and electrical hazards. Without preventative maintenance, the failure rate of electrical systems — even in newer facilities — is three times higher.

“Without an EPM (Electrical Preventative Maintenance) Program, management assumes a much greater risk of a serious electrical failure and its consequences. A well administered program will reduce accidents, save lives and minimize costly breakdowns and unplanned shutdowns of equipment. Impending troubles can be identified — and solutions implemented — before they become major problems requiring more expensive, time-consuming solutions.”

Our goal is ZERO accidents and injuries

The personal safety and health of each employee of this company is of primary importance. The prevention of occupational-introduced injuries and illnesses is of such consequence that it will be given precedence over operating productivity. To the greatest degree possible, management will provide mechanical and physical facilities required for personal safety and health with the highest standards.

We will maintain a safety and health program conforming to the best practices of organizations of this type. To be successful, such a program must embody the proper attitudes toward injury and illness prevention on the part of both supervisors and employees. It also requires cooperation in all safety and health matters, not only between supervisor and employee but also between each employee and their fellow workers. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety record in the best interest of all be established and maintained.

Our objective is a safety and health program that will reduce the number of disabling injuries to a minimum; not merely in keeping with but surpassing the best experience of other operations similar to ours.
