Safety Training and Programs

Training, Teamwork, and Programs that Reinforce Safety

Comprehensive Safety Programs

SEFA maintains its own comprehensive safety programs and complies with all safety programs and practices maintained by its utility partners and customers. It is our policy to take all practical steps to safeguard employees, contractors, and visitors from accidents, and to always maintain the highest safety standards.

Safety training includes required employee training, job-specific courses, and OSHA training, where applicable. Each employee receives safety, hazard awareness, and accident prevention training. New employee orientation includes 25-30 hours of initial training, supplemented by one-to-one field training and SEFA’s LOTO and confined space training. Supervisors are expected to complete OSHA 30-Hour Construction training.

Initial safety training protocols are supplemented by hands-on field skills verification, such as LOTO, Confined Space, Forklift, Aerial Lifts, Fall Protection, Mobile Equipment, and other relevant areas. The SEFA Safety department and supervisors proactively monitor and improve safety training and the Job Safety Analysis. Team members serving in electrical, mechanical, engineering, fabrication, and operations roles regularly exceed OSHA and other relevant training requirements.

You Matter

We will never compromise on safety for our employees, and the communities we serve.

Our YOU MATTER safety program encourages recognition of peers and rewards employees for positive behaviors that help prevent incidents, continually identifying opportunities for a safer working environment.

Safe Or Stop

Through the SAFE OR STOP program, employees are reminded of their responsibility to understand and obey SEFA’s Site Safety Rules and that everyone at SEFA is expected to stop any work that is unsafe and does not comply with Safety rules, regulations, or procedures.

Plan for Safety

SEFA performs a Job Safety Analysis before a project begins, a Pre-Job Brief to ensure everyone understands the scope of work and any hazards and conducts a Take 5 to identify critical steps, hazards, and how to make the job safe.


SEFA trains employees to recognize the four states (Rushing, Frustration, Fatigue, and Complacency) that can cause or contribute to critical errors that increase the risk of injury.

SEAP Program

At plant facilities, employees are reminded to prioritize decisions based on this order:

  1. Safety - Is this safe for me and others?
  2. Environment - Are there any environmental risks?
  3. Assets - Will it damage plant equipment and assets?
  4. Production - How will this impact production?
