Let’s build with zero injuries. Let’s put our moral convictions into practice. For Hoar, safety isn’t about meeting regulations, although we exceed safety regulations across the board. And it’s not about saving money, although thanks to our low accident rate, we pay significantly less in insurance premiums than other contractors. No, for us, safety is about one thing only: ensuring that the people who work on our projects are protected.
Hoar’s passion for safety is driven by our inherent belief that every person on our projects is worthy of and entitled to a safe and healthy work environment. We believe safety is more than a priority – it’s a moral value.
We work hard to earn and maintain our safety record. Hoar Construction’s insurance Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is substantially lower than the national construction industry average, confirming our approach to mitigating risk and safety works; which allows us to pass these savings along to our clients.
As a result of our abiding commitment to the safety of our workers, Hoar has been widely recognized by industry associations, insurers and clients. We have won several awards for safety: Outstanding Performance in Accident Prevention by Travelers Insurance Company, Southern Company Triangle Award, American Subcontractors Association Award, and have received consistent recognition at the highest levels (18 years and counting) from the National Associated Builders and Contractors.
While awards and lower insurance premiums certainly validate our commitment to safety, nothing matters more than knowing we’ve done everything in our power to ensure everyone on the jobsite comes home safely to their families every night.
