The Electrical Shop members are particularly gratified with their involvement in energy-saving projects.

In 2009, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) published a major update to its electrical safety codes called NFPA 70E. The standard covers the full range of electrical safety issues, including safety-related work practices, maintenance, special equipment requirements and installation. Following these standards helps ensure continued high standards of excellence serving the Campus.
