Safety

NO OTHER ASPECT OF OUR BUSINESS IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF OUR TEAM MEMBERS.

  • We employ one in-house Safety Director plus two Safety Coordinators
  • All team members attend weekly safety meetings plus other seminars and events
  • Supervisors receive additional training several times a year
  • Bonuses, compensation and “safety awards” are tied to the safety record of individual projects and the company as a whole
  • We had an incident rate of .5 last year (national average 3.5) and have never had a significant finding from TOSHA
  • Drug-free jobsites because of pre-employment drug screens

SKMES has an Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of .57

Our safety program has a direct effect on your company’s mod rate. The mod rate directly affects the cost of workers’ compensation insurance. The average EMR is 1.00 and means that a company has average losses for their industry and will pay 100% of the annual premium that is set by their state.

Higher EMR = Higher % of Annual Premiums = Higher Than Average Claims
Lower EMR = Pays Less than 100% = Lower Than Average Claims

 

We have hit several milestones and received several awards for safety including:

  • Two Million Man Hours without a Lost Time Accident
  • Governor’s Excellence in Safety
  • 2nd Place Willis Insurance Excellence in Safety
