The Independent Electrical Contractors of Oregon (IEC) recently joined the Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) Oregon, an organization that brings together partners to find solutions to help end the opioid crisis in the state. RALI represents communities across Oregon that have been impacted by this crisis including employers, veterans, children, rural residents, health care providers, law enforcement and others.
The Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) of Oregon is the sole voice of the merit shop electrical professional and a trusted resource for both inside electrical and limited energy contractors. The IEC helps electrical contractors master their craft by offering innovative education and training and support their careers and businesses through services and advocacy at the state and local government levels.
“Established more than 40 years ago, the mission of the IEC is to support our members. We do this by working to improve the electrical profession and the quality of life in our communities. The physically demanding and often dangerous work in the construction trades can take a toll on our members so we are pleased to partner with RALI Oregon to educate them about safe disposal practices that can safeguard their health,” said Cindy Reiger, IEC of Oregon’s Executive Director.
RALI Oregon has partnered with nearly two dozen community organizations to raise awareness and educate the public about the opioid crisis.
