At Schroeder Construction Management, we take safety extremely seriously. With so much potential for disaster when it comes to construction, it’s important to us to that our staff is well versed in all safety protocol, and always has access to appropriate safety equipment. With an accident rate of almost 0, our commercial building services are some of the safest you can find in Southern New Hampshire.
In 2014, OSHA reported that one in ten construction workers are injured each year. Additionally, it’s estimated that on any given day, nearly 6,500,000 people work at 252,000 construction sites on any given day. To prevent contributing to this one in ten statistic, we give our employees some of the highest safety training available. A number of our staff are OSHA 30 certified, and we also carry an ISN rating of a B.
How to Stay Safe?
In addition to receiving an above average amount of safety training, we provide our employees with the proper equipment to maintain a safe environment. This includes, but is not limited to, flashlights, hard hats, neon vests, safety glasses, and ear protection. Falls have been proven to be the biggest cause of fatal construction injuries. Employing equipment such as harnesses, anchors, and guard rails minimizes the risk of a fall.
Experience Modification Rate
An Experience Modification Rate, or EMR, is an insurance rating that is used to determine workers’ compensation premiums for businesses. This is determined by the industry we are in (commercial building), as well as how many OSHA recordables are on file for a given year. If a company has an EMR of 1.0, they pay the industry average. Here at Schroeder Construction Management, we are proud of our 0.79 EMR, meaning we have below average OSHA recordables when compared to other construction firms.
We understand our staff are people with families and lives outside of the construction site, and we work hard to make sure they stay safe while on the job. We strive for perfection when it comes to safety, and every project that is completed without incident is a win in our book.
