Quad State Instructors are electric utility safety professionals. Formed in 1964 by electric utility safety people from four states, members now hail from 22 states. Meetings are held two times a year where we exchange information and solutions, upgrade skills and expand an excellent collection of shared and pertinent training programs. Membership is available through a sponsor and voted on by the members. We welcome new members as there is never too much knowledge and experience. If you're interested in attending a meeting, or becoming a member but don't have a sponsor, write to us. A majority of members work with Electric Cooperatives or Municipal Power Utilities.

Update to OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule


On September 11, 2014, OSHA announced changes to the list of industries that are exempt from the requirement to routinely keep OSHA injury and illness records, and to the list of severe work-related injuries and illnesses that all covered employers must report to OSHA. These new requirements will go into effect on January 1, 2015 for workplaces under Federal OSHA jurisdiction. The guidance materials found on this page have been updated to reflect the new requirements.
