October 31, 2011, Arlington, VA - The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has named Mr. Electric® as the recipient of the 2011 Safety Award for Excellence (SAFE), presented by the Foundation for outstanding efforts in promoting electrical safety.

Jeff Meyers, President, accepted the honor on behalf of Mr. Electric during the National Electrical Manufacturers Association’s 2011 Illuminations Dinner in Washington, D.C. on October 28, 2011. 
ESFI’s SAFE award recognizes utilities, manufacturers, distributors, associations, agencies, nonprofit associations, and other industry-related organizations for active and sustained efforts in support of ESFI’s mission to improve electrical safety awareness.
