Sargent has an EMR of 0.55 (as of 1/1/2021) thanks to the dedication and daily safety efforts of our employee-owners. EMR (experience modification rating) is a metric used to set workers’ compensation insurance rates. A score of < 1.0 indicates high safety standards and results. While this metric doesn’t tell the entire story of our safety program, it’s a strong indicator of how safely our people perform.Experience Modification Rate (EMR) explained
Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is a number used by insurance companies to gauge both past cost of injuries and future chances of risk. 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.
There is an old American proverb that states, “better safe than sorry.” It’s that basic. Safety is the common denominator of every activity we perform.
As a company, we believe building America is a noble calling and a task worth accomplishing. We believe no productivity or profit level justifies exposing our people to undue hazards. We will always strongly prefer mitigating hazards instead of managing injuries.
