Creating a safe work environment protects our company’s and our clients most valuable assets: its people. A safe environment starts with understanding how to work safely. Prioritizing safety training and supporting that training benefits our clients in the form of increased hazard recognition, leading to a reduction of incidents and risky behaviors, without compromising operating efficiency. Tate’s focus on safety has reduced our insurance rates, annually lowered our EMR and provided strong partnerships with our customers to ensure the safety of their people and property. In addition, our focus on safetyimpacts operational savings and gives Tate a market advantage over the competition.
Safety Training was robust The following documents/ programs were reviewed from the requirements in the safety manual: New Hire Checklist, Branch/ Facility Safety Checklist, Temporary Labor Safety Rules Acknowledgement and Training Checklist and Safety Orientation. All were found to be in place, use and effective.
The Experience Modifier Rate, or EMR, is a numeric representation of a business’s claims history and safety record as compared to other businesses in the same industry, within the same state. Basically the
EMR states one of three things:
- This company is riskier than average (EMR > 1.0)
- This company is no more or no less risky than average (EMR = 1.0)
- This company is safer than average (EMR < 1.0)
Our low EMR started with a safety plan, actionable steps to improve safety, and training to ensure that employees are safe on the jobs. Tates Experience Modification Rating has remained extremely favorable at or below .80 for the last 5 years.
