Mr. Electric has been named by the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) as the recipient of the 2011 Safety Award for Excellence (SAFE), presented by the foundation for outstanding efforts in promoting electrical safety.

ESFI’s SAFE award recognizes utilities, manufacturers, distributors, associations, agencies, nonprofit associations, and other industry-related organizations for active and sustained efforts in support of ESFI’s mission to improve electrical safety awareness.

“Last year, our franchisees entered over 120,000 homes and businesses. In each of those homes, our service professionals completed our complimentary home/business safety checkup,” said Jeff Meyers, president of Mr. Electric. “We hope that by spending those extra minutes at every home and business, we will help improve electrical safety awareness to our customers across North America.”

Mr. Electric has worked closely with ESFi in recent years, promoting electrical safety in the home, school, and workplace. The company emphasizes the importance of national safety month, and is producing a line of educational materials for children of customers.

“Mr. Electric has been a champion for ESFI’s cause through their tireless devotion to spreading our campaign safety messages,” said Brett Brenner, President of ESFI. “We applaud Mr. Electric’s unwavering commitment to the safety of their employees, customers and communities and we are grateful to have such a reputable company as an industry partner.”
