Safety is our core value and the highest priority to your project and business.

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 23 percent better than the industry average — for over 10 years.

How we do it:

  • Audits, and lots of them. Our associates conducted 2,981 safety audits on active job sites in 2018.
  • It’s basic to our culture. We performed over 5,900 “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 carry over to the jobsite, where we employ specific measures to anticipate and avoid potential hazards.

The Result:

  • Rudolph Libbe Inc. has worked over 4.9 million* man-hours with no lost time since April of 2013. GEM Inc. has worked 1,269,721*  man-hours with no lost time since August of 2018.

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