Safety is our core value and the highest priority to your project and business.line graph showing 10-year EMR statistics

You may have heard safety quantified as “Experience Mod Rate” or EMR. The EMR is a number used by insurance companies to gauge construction companies’ past costs of injuries and future chances of risk.

An EMR of 1.0 is considered the industry average.  the Rudolph Libbe Group’s average EMR has been 24 percent better than the industry average — for over 10 years.

How we do it:

  • Audits, and lots of them. Our associates conducted over 2,640 safety audits on active job sites in 2017.
  • It’s basic to our culture. We performed 6,500 “Find It, Fix Its” last year.
  • Commitment, plain and simple. We have trained 437 associates in OSHA 10/30 hour construction safety courses with 6 of those associates having completed the OSHA 500-level course.  And safety meetings in the office carryover to the jobsite, where we take specific measure to anticipate and avoid potential hazards.

The Result:

  • Rudolph Libbe Inc. has worked over 3.9 million* man-hours with no lost time since April of 2013.GEM Inc. has worked over 3.27 million* man-hours with no lost time since July of 2016.

We’re committed to maintaining a safe jobsite — for your personnel and for ours.
