Nationwide Boiler Inc. achieved the lowest possible Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of 0.61. The industry benchmark EMR is 1.0.
A company’s EMR is a numeric representation of its safety record, taking into account the number of claims or injuries a company has had in the past year and the corresponding costs. A low EMR demonstrates a company with a good safety track record and high standards in employee safety and training.
Nationwide Boilers’ low EMR has been attained due to a comprehensive safety and training program led by Holly Lepo, the company’s Health, Safety & Environmental Manager. Lepo said, “Nationwide Boiler has a well-rounded Health, Safety & Environmental (HS&E) program that has been fine-tuned by our membership in the ISNetworld and Avetta contractor qualification programs. We currently have over 60 individual safety modules from abrasive wheel grinding to workplace violence. Employee education, involvement and compliance are the keys to having a successful HS&E program.”
