Every employee from customer service to accounting, to dispatchers and line technicians take part in the cooperative’s robust safety training program each year. The program includes classroom style lectures, online training courses, and onsite hands-on learning. Additionally, all employees are CPR/AED trained and certified annually.
BEMC’s training program is led by Dana Mauldin, Manager of Safety. With his military background, 12 years in the field as a technician, and a Certified Loss Control Professional (CLCP), Dana is well-versed in electrical safety and is responsible for the overall implementation and management of the co-op’s program. His second in command, Anthony Raulerson, recently transitioned from his role as a First Class Line Technician to BEMC’s Safety and Training Coordinator. Together, the two bring more than 50 years of electrical experience and knowledge to our safety program.
Brunswick Electric is accredited by the Rural Electric Safety Achievement Program (RESAP), which strives to promote the highest standard of safety among America’s electric cooperatives. This voluntary program, implemented by NC Statewide (NCAEC) and directed by NRECA, critiques our training, regulations, documentation, employee knowledge, equipment, vehicles, facilities and job safety performance. BEMC consistently receives the highest RESAP rating possible, primarily due to our employees’ dedication and involvement in the safety program.
Working with electricity is inherently hazardous, but our team works to mitigate and address those hazards to ensure all our employees go home at the end of each day. Our safety record and training program ensure our insurance rates are competitive and as low as possible, which saves you, the member, money in the long run. It’s a win-win for everyone.
