NECA Safety Meeting app

NECA unveiled the Safety Meeting app to help contractors develop an internal safety program within their company. This app has incorporated all of the NECA toolbox talks for both wiremen and linemen. It also provides real time information about on the job safety meetings and stores all documentation in the “Cloud” so management can retrieve this information electronically back in the office.  Since its release, revisions to the app have been made to have separate multi-user groups within one company and to provide PDF checklists for job site inspections and job briefings.
