The Safety Numbers Are In

Riley Construction’s safety numbers are better than ever!

The NCCI (National Council on Compensation Insurance) has revised our EMRs* for the past 3 years.

2017: 0.54 (from 0.55)
2016: 0.51 (from 0.52)
2015: 0.60 (from 0.61)

An EMR of 1.0 is considered the industry average, which means Riley’s safety rating is currently 46% better than average!

 

*Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is a number used by insurance companies to gauge both past cost of injuries and future chances of risk. The lower the EMR, the better the safety record. These new numbers may seem like small changes, but in reality, it’s very hard to move even slightly when EMRs are already so low.

2017 Warrior Dash Obstacle Course Race

Riley Construction had a great group attending the Warrior Dash this past Saturday, May 13. The event is a reinvented 5k run that consists of a fun obstacle course race that our group proved anyone can start, and everyone can finish. Seasoned and beginner athletes alike took the challenge to conquer 12 world-class obstacles like the Goliath and Fisherman’s Catch, wade across wooded lakes and streams, and venture through mud-caked backroads as they made the loop to the finish line. All were rewarded with a finisher medal, a sweet t-shirt, fuzzy Warrior helmet, ice cold beer and a post-race party to relive the course with friends, and celebrate the decision to live a normal weekend in the mud.

Funds from the event registration and donations are provided to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
