EMCOR's Safety Program
EMCOR and its 80+ operating companies believe that only by integrating safety, quality, and productivity can we provide the high-quality services expected of us. Striving for an injury-free environment is a company-wide core value. To that end, as part of our award-winning Be There For Life! program, we continue to alert our employees to the potential for injuries at every turn.
EMCOR's safety performance consistently remains strong year after year with a current Incident Rate that is 52-percent lower than our competitors (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics Industry Average for Specialty Contractors NAICS 2382, 2022). For 15 consecutive years, our incident rate has been less than half the industry average.
To achieve this exceptional performance, we continuously reinforce good work practices that help reduce risk and prevent unsafe behavior. Our ongoing safety campaign reminds employees to BE VIGILANT because injuries don't announce, they pounce. This focus has helped us earn recognition from a number of leading safety organizations, including CNA Insurance Company.
At EMCOR, productivity isn't about shortcuts – it's about creating the right conditions to complete projects on or ahead of time in a way that also helps minimize risk. This includes thorough pre-planning, pre-assembly, pre-fabrication, and setup, as well as equipping our workers with the tools, equipment, training, and supervision they need to succeed.
The integration of safety, quality, and productivity has helped us successfully reduce injuries and injury costs. This makes EMCOR one of the safest and most efficient specialty contractors in the industry—and the right choice for your next commercial construction or facilities services project.
