Graybar Powers Trades with New Scholarship Program

Deadline Extended! Students Apply @ poweringtrades.com?by May 15, 2020

There is a labor shortage across the construction trades, and Graybar wants to help.

The National Electrical Contractors Association says that 7,000 electricians join the electrical industry each year, but more than 10,000 retire.

“With retirement on the horizon for many skilled professionals, the industry is in need of new ways to fill the talent gap,” said Graybar Chairman, President and CEO Kathy Mazzarella. “The lack of skilled workers and a narrow talent pipeline means that projects fall behind, costs rise and companies start to decline opportunities. The Graybar Construction Trades Scholarship allows us to make a positive difference by increasing awareness of careers in the construction trades and removing barriers to entry for young people with financial needs.”

Graybar Construction Trades Scholarship

Launched earlier this year, the Graybar Construction Trades Scholarship is available to high-school students nationwide and aims to reduce the cost of attending a trade school or participating in an apprenticeship or pre-apprenticeship program.

Each award recipient of a Graybar Construction Trades Scholarship will receive $1,000, renewable for a second year to total $2,000. Graybar will award up to 50 of these scholarships.

In order to be eligible for the Graybar Construction Trades Scholarship, applicants must:

  • Be graduating high-school seniors or have recently earned a high-school equivalency diploma (GED, HiSET, TASC)
  • Plan to enroll full-time in a non-profit community college, technical school, trade school, vocational school or apprenticeship program in the United States of America
  • Intend to complete an associate degree, pre-apprenticeship, apprenticeship, or certificate program leading to work in the construction trades (electrical, HVAC, plumbing, pipefitting, welding)
  • Achieved a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale, 456 on the GED, or 60 on the HiSET (at least an 8 on each subtest) or equivalent scores on a state-sanctioned test
  • Demonstrate financial need

Students can find the link to apply for the scholarship at poweringtrades.com. Applicants must register and apply through Scholarship Central, a platform hosted by the St. Louis Community Foundation. In addition to the applicant link, there is a host of information at poweringtrades.com. This includes program requirements, downloadable flyers and posters, and a list of frequently asked questions.

The deadline for the 2020 scholarship application has been extended to May 15. Recipients will be announced later this year.

Three Ways to Improve Electrical Safety During a COVID-19 Related Shutdown

iStock-1094406640
In a recent Plant Engineering?poll, half of the respondents said their businesses have been negatively affected by COVID-19.?

If your plant is unexpectedly shut down due to the current crisis, you can use this pause in production as an opportunity to review and improve safety procedures.?

Why should you make maintaining your electrical infrastructure a priority??

  • Improperly maintained equipment increases safety risks
  • Maintaining equipment properly helps to prevent unplanned shutdowns and decrease property risks
  • Even if your equipment is new, it needs a proactive maintenance and service program?

Panduit recently shared tips to help you use downtime as an opportunity to improve communication and engagement around company safety protocols.

Consider these steps to improve electrical safety:

? ? ? ?1.?Revisit electrical specifications to see where you can introduce new technology

  • New advances in electrical safety technology can not only promote a safer work environment, but also lower costs and help your team become more productive.
  • According to the National Safety Council’s Safety+ Health magazine, the most common cause of arc flash accidents is human error . How can you integrate technology to reduce the chance of mistakes? New permanently installed test equipment is one way to promote a safer environment in your plant.

? ? ? ?2.?Standardize electrical safety procedures to help establish a company-wide culture of safety?

  • Think about how safety processes are currently implemented throughout your facility. Are there opportunities to make compliance with standards easier, and reduce the chance for human error?
  • Can you improve training for qualified electrical workers? What tools and equipment do they need to become more efficient and do their jobs more safely?
  • Is your messaging consistent with your safety processes? Clarity can increase employee and upper management buy-in.
  • While the plant is shut down, invite floor employees to walk through operations and safety procedures with you, looking for gaps in safety or maintenance. Performing the walk-through together will help employees feel ownership over the process.?
  • Safety procedures can vary by department, shift and/or location. Ask all plant or safety managers and floor employees to take an internal survey or join you on a process walk-through to encourage electrical best practices throughout the facility.

? ? ? ?3.?Reduce risk and improve efficiencies with Engineering Controls

  • Engineering controls rely on physical changes to the workplace, instead of workers’ behavior, to reduce hazards and human error. A good example is an Absence of Voltage Tester (AVT).?
  • While examining your safety and maintenance processes for opportunities to improve, consult the Hierarchy of Controls . Seek out opportunities for new technologies to introduce an engineering control into a particular process, and make sure to ask for input from your team.
    ?

In this time of uncertainty, show your commitment to employee safety by using the downtime to review electrical safety on the plant floor. A shutdown provides a unique opportunity to walk through processes as a company, empowering employees to participate in the process and encouraging adoption of proper procedure when business as usual resumes.
