This attention to detail not only protects the interests of our clients, but also allows our employees to return safely to their families every night
Santa Clara, CA (Vocus) November 10, 2010
Precipitous cost cutting by contractors has shrunk safety programs and ballooned risk to property owners and managers. Hallmark Construction of Santa Clara, CA has demonstrated its commitment to investing in safety, employees, and clients with its fifth consecutive Excellence in Safety Award from the Construction Employers’ Association (CEA).
In receiving the CEA award, Hallmark Construction continues to meet the strictest standards of a total incident, their lost workday rate is 50% below the industry average, and their Experience Modification Rating (EMR) is also well below industry average of 1.00. Owners and managers can look at a contractor’s EMR, total incidents, and lost workday rate to help determine a contractor’s safety performance.
Hallmark Construction’s safety program, implementation and execution are critical to ensuring accidents and violations are avoided, and a project is completed on time and within budget. Furthermore, property owners and managers may be exposed to administrative costs, investigation costs, and costs for legal consultation.
“Any type of safety incident will affect the owner with possible delays in the project schedule, disruption to their operation, and in the event of a major incident, OSHA [Occupational Health & Safety Administration] would be on site inspecting all operations, not only construction activities, but the owners as well,” said Don Romano, industry veteran and Project Manager at Hallmark Construction.
Hallmark Construction achieves exemplary results through meticulous, comprehensive project and safety planning, continuous safety training of all employees, and rigorous safety inspections and follow-through. Investing in an effective safety program is an essential, ethical, and responsible business practice affecting all of a project’s stakeholders.
“This attention to detail not only protects the interests of our clients, but also allows our employees to return safely to their families every night,” said Hallmark’s General Superintendant Dave Bagley.
