Safety

The cornerstone of every successful project lies within our employees, subcontractors and those in and around our work environments. With this in mind, we have developed an industry leading safety program that places the health and welfare of our people and partners above all else. While we are proud of our safety awards, we’re even more proud of our safe work environments.

Our Safety Record

National Safety Council | Logo
Many Companies rely on their Experience Modification Rate (EMR) to judge the effectiveness of their safety program. While we are proud of our industry besting average EMR of .62, we recognize that workplace safety equates to no lost time due to safety failures, which means no schedule delays, no OSHA delays, greater productivity, and ultimatley a more successful project. With over 1,390,000 hours worked over the past three years and a lost time rate of only 1.8, our safety program and our commitment to it is demonstrably superior!
