Safety: The Keystone of Our Success
Our focus on safety has become a hallmark of our reputation. We believe that it is our duty to ensure that every one of our employees and partners is exposed to a comfortable, secure environment. We received the President’s Award from our insurance carrier for our loss ratio on worker’s compensation claims in 2015. We have even expanded our outreach to create safety programs for other organizations. For one client, we developed a healthcare-specific training model that addressed the intricate and specific concerns of healthcare environments, including safety and infectious control-risk analysis.
We believe it is part of our mission to share these efforts and to strive to educate others in our industry about safety/risk and strategies on how to implement their own comprehensive programs. For example, we have been recognized for our development and implementation of our Early Intervention Wellness Program targeted to reduce strain related injuries. We have also shared our efforts with other peers in our industry and with General Contractors to develop their own Early Intervention Wellness programs.
