I.B.E.W. Local 42 Occupational, Safety, Health and Education Trust Fund (O.S.H.E.) was established on June 13, 2001 for the exclusive benefit of the employees of contributing employers. The department's purpose is to provide an occupational safety program to instruct employees in safe working procedures and job-related occupational safety and health standards and to prevent job-related accidents and injuries.

The O.S.H.E. Department also offers a work education and training program to educate, train and retain employees to assure proficiency in job performance, to upgrade the skills of workers, to assure competence in the operation and maintenance of equipment and to provide instruction and practical experience under supervision for employees; which training, education, instruction and work experience is not otherwise provided under another program for employees in the outside electrical industry.

NECA'S PARTNERSHIP with IBEW Ensuring fair wages and benefits, as well as a unified skill set and training, for electrical workers serves the best interests of the industry and NECA customers. NECA's national office, chapters, and member contractors have long practiced constructive and responsible labor relations in concert with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), the world's oldest and largest union of electrical workers. Peaceful settlement of grievances and jurisdictional disputes are implemented at NECA's national and local levels through cooperative forums.
