Leaders in Construction Safety
Safety is critical to our business and it’s an underlying theme in everything we do at The Ross Group. From construction accident prevention programs to employee training to lock out / tag out procedures, we take safety seriously.
That’s one reason we were chosen as one of six companies out of 3,400 to receive a Gibson Safety Award in 2010 (Click through for details from press release). We’re proud to say The Ross Group achieved Zero (0) recordable injuries in the last 3 years.
Our Creative Approach to Construction Safety
Working safe often means meeting challenges with a touch of creativity, as we balance the need to bring building materials and workers to a job site with the critical job of staying safe.
Experience Modification Rate (EMR) has strong impact upon a business. The Ross Group’s lowest possible EMR rate in the state of Indiana (.69) allows us to be more competitive in all aspects of our business.
