Ensuring jobsite safety is one of our primary concerns, and Interface Electric maintains an ongoing safety program to minimize the risks to our own personnel and others on every jobsite. Our program includes both onsite inspections and regular safety meetings with our employees.

Our standing jobsite safety requirements are detailed below.
