EMCOR's Safety Program

EMCOR and its 75+ 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 is far better than the Bureau of Labor Statistics industry averages, with a rate of injury that is consistently 60-75 percent lower than our competitors.

CNA Insurance Company and many others have recognized our safety performance due in part to our continued focus on good work practices that help reduce the inherent risk in our work environments while striving to prevent unsafe behavior. Our exceptional performance is often achieved by reinforcing good work practices with our effective and ongoing safety campaign— which reminds our employees to BE VIGILANT, and that "injuries don’t announce…they pounce."

At EMCOR, productivity isn't about shortcuts – it's about creating the right conditions for schedules and plans to be completed on time or with time advantage. This includes pre-planning, setup, deploying trained workers with the right tools and equipment, as well as the correct degree of instruction and supervision.

The integration of safety, quality and productivity has successfully helped to reduce injuries and injury costs. This makes EMCOR one of the safest and most efficient specialty contractors  – and the right choice for your next commercial construction and facilities services project.
