Attracting and retaining the best people is the key to the success of any business. From the very beginning, Tri-City has exhibited a keen commitment to providing its employees with real opportunities for growth through comprehensive, ongoing training and one of the best apprenticeship programs in the industry. In fact, in Central Florida, Tri-City has more apprentices in the Florida Electrical Apprenticeship & Training program (FEAT) than all other area contractors combined! The investment in training yields visible results — producing a workforce that is capable, reliable, highly motivated, and skilled in the latest technology. To further the importance of training, Tri-City practices a strong “promote from within” policy. As a result, most field and project managers have risen through the ranks and have gained a deep appreciation for the value of well-trained craftspeople in the effective, efficient application of their trade.
Tri-City’s ongoing investment in training offers customers the added dividend of exceptional safety performance. As part of its Safety Incentive Program, the company employs a full-time Director of Safety and Training as well as specialized safety personnel in division offices. Based on the highly-trained efforts of Tri-City’s field and management team, Tri-City’s strategic plan is to always improve over the previous year and its goal is to be the recognized leader for safety in the area and a “Zero Accident Lifestyle.”
All of Tri-City’s job sites are carefully prepared for OSHA visits and inspections. As a result of the entire Company’s responsibility for and efforts toward jobsite safety, Tri-City’s incident rate has improved to 1.39 with an outstanding lost time rate of 0.26 in 2018. EMR for 2015 is 0.70.
Tri-City has achieved the prestigious Platinum Level National ABC Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) Award, another great example of Tri-City’s commitment to job safety for all employees. Due to our concentrated safety efforts and results, Tri-City was the recipient of the prestigious Amerisure Safety Resource Grant in 2011.
