Safety Programs for Electrical Contractors – Electricians

The IEC-KYIN Safety Director visits job sites to conduct thorough safety inspections, following a four-page OSHA compliance checklist.  We also provide on-site safety training.  

This training also identifies additional specific OSHA, EPA, and DOT compliance training that may be required in certain situations. Please be aware that this training will not, however, serve to fulfill any of the compliance training required by the above listed agencies.

Brandon Yates – Safety Director

My name is Brandon Yates. I am the Safety/Training Director for the IEC.

My experiences include:

  • Being involved with the IEC as a Teacher’s Assistant in 2021
  • Being an Electrical apprentice at Yates Electric and becoming a Journeyman Electrician
  • Completing the 4 year IEC Apprenticeship Program
  • Being OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 trained

I am excited to be able to help educate our membership about the dangers that may be present in the workplace, as well as be able to actively work with the instructors training the next generation of electricians.
