Safety

The personal safety and health of each of Harper Construction’s employees is the number one concern of our company. The prevention of injuries and illnesses take precedence over operating productivity. It is important that our employees feel safe during every project, small or large.

Harper Construction complies and exceeds all applicable federal, state and local health and safety regulations. Safety and health supervision is a critical part of every project. Employees comply with all safety and health requirements whether established by the company or by federal, state or local law. It is a condition of employment to work for Harper Construction.

During preparation of a project, planning for the safety of our employees is just as important as the planning of the job itself. For each project, we determine the safety regulations that need to be implemented depending on that specific job and make sure they are kept in place during the entire length of the project. We are very proud that we send our employees home in the same shape they came to work in.

EMR RATING

Harper Construction is committed to the safety and health of our employees and we pride ourselves on having a low Experience Modification Rate (EMR). EMR is a number calculated by an insurance company based on your company’s payroll, past claims and safety record. EMR is used by companies, especially in construction, as a representation of their safety record.

An EMR rate of 1.0 is considered to be an industry average, and a company with a score of less than 1.0 is considered safer than average. An EMR score changes every year. Harper Construction was last scored on January 1, 2017 and received an EMR score of 0.74.
