Koontz Electric Company is committed to the Zero Accident Vision philosophy. We believe that nobody should be injured or killed in an accident.

We are human, and humans make mistakes, but erroneous actions should not result in injuries. This is one reason why safety should be emphasized in planning of any working environment. The Zero Accident Vision is based on the belief that all accidents are preventable, and therefore promoting the Zero Accident Vision is an important strategy for preventing workplace accidents.
