SAFETY IS JOB NUMBER ONE
The typical Experience Modification Rate (EMR) for electrical contractors is approximately 2.0. Our current EMR is 0.70.
We’re proud of that, but not complacent. Our focus on safety means greater efficiency and lower costs for you and for us.
Here are a couple of things we do to keep safety at the top of our minds:
Monthly Safety Talks: Once a month, each job site reviews safety measures, and special concerns to be aware of.
Monthly Raffle: Each job site has a monthly raffle for a variety of prizes. Employees with a recordable injury that month are not allowed to take part. We feel it helps give them an incentive to stay safe.
Safety Suggestion Program: Any employee who suggests a way to improve safety that we use gets a $100 gift card. Trust us, the extra safety is worth every penny.
FROM OUR RISK MANAGER
Shaw Electric Co. has created a safety culture committed to providing a safe work environment for all of our employees as well as members of other contractors on our job sites.
To this end, we believe that it is the responsibility of management and every employee of Shaw Electric Co. to carry out their jobs in a manner that does not create any unnecessary hazards or unsafe conditions for the employee or any other person on the jobsite.
Safety on the jobsite is not to be sacrificed under any condition to expedite the project, because of pressure from other trades or contractors, or because of personal ambivalence toward safety procedures.
Shaw employees receive accredited safety training by safety professionals which includes safety orientations, electrical safety, arc flash, confined space, fall protection MIOSHA 10- and 30-hour construction safety, first aid and CPR.
At Shaw, safety, health, awareness and wellness is each employee’s responsibility.
Jim Vanderhull, Risk Manager
I have been impressed by Shaw’s commitment in handling all aspects of safety that includes training, pre- and post-loss analysis, and coordination of risk management with employees, owners, general contractors and their insurance companies in a very professional manner.
