who we are


GROUND™ has been providing the ECAO and IBEW with occupational health and safety services for more than 20 years.

The company, formally known as Frampton Inc., is best known for their OH&S program called Quality Connection, which was widely used in the industry for almost two decades.
Today, GROUND™ has a new program, which was designed and developed to meet the modern needs of ECAO Members.
GROUND™ along with the ECAO and IBEW recognized, with the advent of the COR™ program, the need to meet or exceed the new COR™ requirements in order to ensure that ECAO

member firms maintain their good standing on bidders’ lists.
As a result, GROUND™ developed Ground Program to reflect the 19 elements required in the province of Ontario as a first step to satisfy this new standard.
Those elements are aligned with the COR™ audit tool. Thirteen are common to all provinces participating in the program, while six are specific to the province of Ontario.
