What are man hours? Man hours are the number of hours worked by the employees of TEC Corp, Thompson Electric, Thompson Teledata and Electric Innovations. These man hours include all employees, field, shop and office.
Why are they recorded? The Bureau of Labor requires TEC Corp to track all hours worked, whether it is regular hours or overtime. The Bureau of Labor uses this information to establish the baseline for injuries, recorded per 100 employees each working 2000 hours per year or 200,000 man hours. The national average is 2.9 injuries per 200,000 man hours for the electrical industry. TEC Corp’s average is 1.8 injuries per 200,000 man hours, well below the national average.
We have seen a steady increase in man hours worked over the past few years, but have also seen a steady decrease in injuries.

2011 437,218 man hours
2012 467,045 man hours
