Square D Receives Occupational Excellence Award
The National Safety Council has named Square D Services from Schneider Electric as a winner of its Occupational Excellence Achievement Award for 2009.
The council recognizes companies, units and/or facilities that have reported injuries and illnesses that involved days away from work equal to or less than 50 percent of the Bureau of Labor Statistics rating for their six-digit industry classification (NAICS) code and have had no fatalities during a calendar year, January 1 through December 31.
“In 2008, Square D Services by Schneider Electric had a lost time accident rate 20 times less than the national average for its NAICS code,” said Mike Rice, vice president, Square D Services. “We’re certainly proud of that accomplishment and feel it’s just one more reason customers should look to us for electrical distribution equipment service.”
