May Is National Electrical Safety Month (NESM)

Prepare to Celebrate Electrical Safety with Greenlee and!

In case you aren’t aware, May is National Electrical Safety Month. So we’re partnering with Greenlee to help everyone get into the spirit of the season by giving away a bunch of Greenlee electrical tools over the next month. Happy NESM to us all!


About Those Greenlee Tools

Every day at Greenlee, the team invests time thinking about all the possible ways tradesmen interact with the tools they rely on to do the job. Engineering a balanced tool – tools that are made specifically for the tasks the electrical tradesman will perform – is a critical design consideration.

Through their industry-first ergonomics laboratory, ErgoLab, Greenlee uses state-of-the-art electromyography analysis to measure and record the amount of electrical activity that a muscle produces while using a tool. The fewer electrical signals that are produced while using a tool, the less muscle force exerted.

Kit includes: Professional Tool Backpack, Non-Contact Voltage Detector, 10″ Flex Clamp Meter, Cable Stripper, Cable-Insulated Ratchet Cutter, 9-Piece Insulated Screwdriver, 100′ Nylon Fishtape, 7-piece Standard Insulated Kit, Insulated Terminal Crimping Tool, Insulated Cable Cutter, Tradesman Gloves, and Frameless Clear Safety Glasses.

Greenlee uses this analysis to design grips that fit the range of the customer better, tools that eliminate awkward or unnecessary movement, and equipment that displays an attention to balance and natural positioning.

How Do I Get Into The NESM Spirit?

It’s easy! First, take some time to consider the ways that you can practice electrical safety in your home, office, schools, churches, synagogues, and anywhere else that has power. The Electrical Safety Foundation International, an organization committed to spreading electrical safety awareness, has loads of tips to help keep you safe. From precautionary measures to take during natural disasters to raising your children with a healthy appreciation for the merits and hazards of electrical power, ESFI’s goal is to use education as a means of minimizing the number of electrical fatalities across the globe.

Secondly, start celebrating National Electrical Safety Month by entering our Greenlee tool giveaway. It’s easy: simply follow the link to our giveaway page, sign up for our newsletter, and start planning out how you’ll use these tools to keep yourself productive, powered up, and safe!
