At Ennis Electric, safety starts on day one.

Ennis Electric’s commitment to safe work practices began when John Ennis, Sr. founded the company. That foundation has been passed down to every employee since then—making it an integral part of our culture. We make safety each employee’s primary responsibility. Our priority is the safety of our employees and business partners, with a goal of ensuring that no person or their family suffers because of an incident that happened while working with Ennis Electric.

Ennis Electric has implemented a comprehensive safety program that provides a proactive approach for total accident prevention. Day-to-day responsibility for our corporate program resides with our full-time safety director, Richard Ennis. He is empowered to train our coworkers, perform jobsite safety audits, identify and implement safe standards and practices, and investigate incidents. Our Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is consistently below the average rate of our peers and is a testament to our success in providing a safe environment.
