Safety, Quality & Productivity
EMCOR and its 75+ operating companies believe that only by integrating safety, quality, and productivity can we provide the high-quality services expected of us. Striving for an injury-free environment is a company-wide core value. To that end, as part of our award-winning Be There For Life! program, we continue to alert our employees to the potential for injuries at every turn.
EMCOR’s safety performance is far better than the Bureau of Labor Statistics industry averages, with a rate of injury that is consistently 60-75 percent lower than our competitors.
The performance has been recognized by the CNA Insurance Company and many others as an industry standard-setter.
One reason is our intense focus on good work practice to reduce the inherent risk in our work environment and prevent risky behavior. Good performance is achieved when this message is reinforced with our effective and ongoing safety reminder campaign— this time reminding our employees to BE VIGILANT, and that injuries don’t announce…they pounce.
EMCOR's Operating Companies collaborate through the Productivity Plus Program to share information about new products and processes that have been proven to work. Productivity Plus publications distribute this knowledge by detailing the product or process; outlining the safety, quality, and productivity benefits; and explaining investment and payback criteria.
At EMCOR Group, productivity isn't about shortcuts – it's about creating the right conditions for schedules and plans to be completed on time or with time advantage.
This includes pre-planning, setup, deploying trained workers with the right tools and equipment, as well as the correct degree of instruction and supervision.
The integration of safety, quality and productivity has successfully reduced injuries and injury costs while improving quality and productivity. This makes EMCOR one of the safest and most efficient specialty contractors in the world – and the right choice for your next commercial construction and facilities services project.
