Recognizing the importance of safety policies and site-specific safety standards, Schetter employs a dedicated safety professional, with the sole responsibility of implementing and executing our Safety Program. We regularly monitor and analyze our own safety performance to ensure that we meet or exceed all guidelines and regulations.
Since launching our Safety Program we have seen our Experience Modification Rate (EMR) drop consistently each year, and we continue to achieve incident rates well below industry average.
Our dedication to safety and continuous drive toward operational excellence, we have established a business relationship with Gold Shovel Standard, a service provider and platform for reducing excavation damages to buried infrastructure. GSS is a key element of our company-wide effort to eliminate damages to buried infrastructure.
