EMCOR's Safety Program
EMCOR and its 80+ operating companies believe that only by integrating safety, quality, and productivity can we provide the high-quality services expected of us. Striving for an injury-free environment is a company-wide core value. To that end, as part of our award-winning Be There For Life! program, we continue to alert our employees to the potential for injuries at every turn.
EMCOR's safety performance consistently remains strong year after year with a current rate better than 60% of competitors and that ranks 63% lower than the Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.

CNA Insurance Company and many others have recognized our safety performance due in part to our continued focus on good work practices that help reduce the inherent risk in our work environments while striving to prevent unsafe behavior. Our exceptional performance is often achieved by reinforcing good work practices with our effective and ongoing safety campaign—which reminds our employees to BE VIGILANT, and that "injuries don’t announce…they pounce."
At EMCOR, productivity isn't about shortcuts – it's about creating the right conditions for schedules and plans to be completed on time or with time advantage. This includes pre-planning, setup, deploying trained workers with the right tools and equipment, as well as the correct degree of instruction and supervision.
