Our team of highly experienced journeymen, engineers, codes experts, managers, instructors, consultants, and trainers are recognized across the country as the leaders in the electrical industry. Our staff provides consulting services to utilities, contractors, general industry, manufacturers, Federal OSHA and State OSHA programs. ESCI’s staff collectively totals more than 430 years of knowledge and expertise gained from industry across the nation.

Our staff joined ESCI from some of the largest utility organizations in the country. Each staff member has many years of technical, hands-on, trade specific, supervisory and management experience. We have held positions as general managers, engineering managers, test lab directors, line superintendents, line and substation foremen, directors of safety, international training instructors, distribution, transmission and substation design, construction, maintenance and operations technicians and managers.

ESCI currently provides on-going safety services to more than 40 private and public utilities, employing more than 4,100 employees across eight western states. ESCI serves some of our customers as their “Safety and Training Department” providing all the services an “in-house” safety and training department might offer, including safety training, field audits, updates to written safety manuals and policies, rule and regulation interpretation and application, and consultation. ESCI also provides industry training courses, consulting services and expert witness services.
