At Renaissance Roofing we value safety above all else, and our record backs it up. Safety Director Collin Maas ensures every project is set up and completed in a safe manner, and last year we achieved a workers’ compensation insurance Experience Modification Rating (EMR) of .70. The industry average is 1.0, which means our proven history of safe work allows for cheaper insurance rates — savings that we are able to pass along to customers (for more info on the value of a low EMR, click here).
As part of our culture of safety, we participate in the annual OSHA National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. On Monday, May 6th, Collin held training sessions with our roofing crews to refocus on the important safety protocols in place that ensure every Renaissance Roofing team member returns home safely after a day of work.
According to OSHA, in 2017 there were 366 preventable construction fatalities caused by falls. Hazard elimination, proper training, and use of fall protection will change these numbers. We are committed to creating a safe work environment — every day, for every worker, at every project.
