Safety is a core value and a part of our culture here at Kingsbury Companies. We are committed to the highest standards of safety performance possible consistent with sound construction practices. Providing a safe work environment is a priority and adherence to safety policies is a condition of employment.
Our outstanding safety record reflects our dedication to building a culture of safety. From the CEO to employees at every job site, safety awareness is an integral component in any endeavor we undertake. At Kingsbury Companies, staff members and service partners share a willingness to uphold high safety standards, which helps us provide the safest and healthiest work environment possible. Our insurance experience modifier rate (EMR) has historically been well below the national average and is indicative of our commitment to safety and health in everything we do.
At Kingsbury Companies, we also believe that the prevention of accidents is both our moral obligation and good business. Our safety efforts are based on our belief that every working person is entitled to a safe and healthy place to work. The responsibility for the health and safety of our employees goes far beyond simple compliance with the federal and state regulatory requirements. We recognize that the protection of our employees, property, the public and the environment are essential to the efficient and successful completion of every construction project we undertake. Safety is more than a priority at Kingsbury, here safety is a value.
We know that our accident prevention efforts must have the same value as quality, morale, cost, schedule, and production. Safety is not something we do in addition to the work. It's how we do the work.
