Haldeman Homme is proud to announce our latest Experience Modification Rate at .71. This is .29 points better than the industry average of 1.0. The Experience Modification Rate, or EMR, is an insurance rating that calculates risk, based on past safety issues. Oftentimes, it is used to determine whether contractors are qualified to bid on jobs. Our .71 EMR means we are able to take on nearly any job, and do it safely.
Haldeman Homme has gone nearly four years without lost time due to injuries or incidents, thanks to our improved safety initiatives. At Haldeman Homme, Inc. safety is not just a plan, we make it part of our culture. We do this by talking about the importance of staying safe: At the beginning of all company meetings, with our teams onsite, and every time we reach a milestone day without lost time. In the past five years safety has become one of our main core values.
Our workers in the field know the importance of safety because we celebrate the small successes that add up to large wins. Our job superintendents are empowered to hand out “Safety Shout Outs” when they see workers following proper safety protocols. These are small gifts to say thank you for making safety a priority, they can be anything from gift cards for lunch to a free company shirt.
When we reach milestone days of no lost time we celebrate as a company with HHI sponsored breakfast or lunch at our office locations. This serves as a reminder to our office staff how hard our installation teams work to stay safe onsite. Without the hard work and dedication of our installation teams our newest EMR rating of 0.71 wouldn’t be possible. As an employee owned company we know our people are our best asset; that is why we are committed to keeping our employee owners safe and injury free.
Proper protocols are followed at every HHI job site, ensuring all of our projects are completed without any sacrifice of safety. Each quarter our safety committee meets to discuss initiatives we can implement to make sure everyone is properly trained on all equipment. The HHI mission of “safety first in all we do” will remain one of the core values that make up the culture of Haldeman Homme, Inc.
