R. Baker & Son Proudly Announces Better EMR Due to Impeccable Safety Record

R. Baker & Son All Industrial Services is proud to announce that our Experience Modification Rate (EMR) for the Year 200/2010 has dropped from a 0.79 to a 0.73. This is directly due to R. Baker & Son's corporate commitment to safety and zero accidents / incidents.

The Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is a number utilized by insurance companies to gauge both past and future chances of risk. The basis of the experience modification is a comparison of the actual losses charged to an employer during the experience period with the expected losses for an average employer reporting the same exposures in each classification.  In general, the lower the EMR of your business, the lower your worker compensation insurance premiums will be.

An EMR of 1.0 is considered the industry average.  Any EMR rating above 1.0 may indicate that a contractor has not managed their safety program correctly and has had workers compensation claims (i.e. injuries).  R. Baker & Son's EMR is 0.73 which is substantially below 1.0 and shows that R. Baker & Son manages risk and safety correctly.

In fact, an EMR of 0.73 is an extremely rare if non-existent accomplishment within our industry. A record like this can only be accomplished through the dedication and teamwork of our employees and subcontractors and their commitment to work safely. R. Baker & Son also wants to thank our customers for their commitment to providing a safe work place.

R. Baker & Son will continue to maintain our promise to all of you to provide safe working conditions, the latest technology in tools and equipment and continued education and industry training.  By working together and maintaining a mutual goal of accident free projects, our success will continue and benefit each of us at work and at home for years to come.
