After our weekly safety meeting at this project site, we displayed EMCOR’s new safety poster with the message “While You Work, Injuries Lurk”.
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 accident-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 accidents at every turn.
EMCOR's safety performance is five to 10 times above the Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average – and the CNA Insurance Company and others recognize EMCOR as an industry standard-setter. One reason is EMCOR’s ongoing safety reminder campaign – this time reminding our employees to BE VIGILANT, and that accidents don’t announce…they pounce.
EMCOR's Operating Companies collaborate through the Productivity Plus Program to share information about new products and processes that have been proven to work. Productivity Plus publications distribute this knowledge by detailing the product or process, outlining the safety, quality and productivity benefits and explaining investment and payback criteria.
At EMCOR Group, 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 preplanning, 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 reduced injuries and injury costs while improving quality and productivity. This makes EMCOR one of the safest and most efficient specialty contractors in the world – and the right choice for your next commercial construction and facilities services project.
