We believe every individual should return home to their families each day in the same condition they arrived to work that morning. This starts with the way each new associate is hired and trained.
Because of our unwavering commitment to safety, our crews worked over 10 years with no lost time accidents. The Samuels Group has achieved this impeccable safety record through our proactive Safety Program that is applied, without compromise, to every associate and subcontractor.
Notable Safety Mentions:
- The Samuels Group achieved one-million man hours with no lost time accidents in 2012 (in less than 10 years). The statistic is factored through the collection of all personnel’s hours without a lost time accident. A lost time accident occurs when a Samuels Group employee is injured during work hours and cannot return to work the next day.
- Awarded the Associated General Contractors Safety Award for over 9 years!
- Our Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is .72, a rate well below the national average of 1.0 and one of the lowest in the industry. Our clients benefit from our low EMR because it often results in reduced insurance related expenditures (ultimately saving them money). They can be confident that their project is constructed in a safe manner.
- In April of 2012 The Samuels Group established a three year strategic partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Wisconsin Occupational Safety and Health Consultation Program. The goal of the partnership was to reduce worker's exposure to hazards and the likelihood of serious injuries at the Sacred Heart Hospital Curtain Wall Replacement Project in Eau Claire. “This voluntary strategic partnership focused on identifying and controlling hazards, improving safety and health programs, promoting a cooperative relationship between labor and management, and encouraging employee participation in achieving a safe and healthful workplace,” said Mark Hysell, OSHA’s area director in Eau Claire.
