Oak Creek Industrial considers environmental health and safety a top priority on all projects. We are proud of our excellent safety record achieved through the dedication of our employees and safe practices. Our experience modification rate (EMR) is 0.83, among the lowest in the industry and well below the nationwide industry standard (1.0). Our formidable safety rating is of particular importance to Owners, and also decreases Oak Creek insurance rates, resulting in direct cost savings to Owners. “Safety First” is our company motto and work philosophy. It is vital all employees understand safe work practices associated with their environment and scope of work. Safety requires good communication between supervisors, craft foremen, employees, and all other fellow workers or individuals that can be affected by or in surrounding areas where work actions are being performed. In order to create awareness of project risks and promote safe work practices, Oak Creek personnel are required to attend the mandatory company safety meetings given prior to the start of work. The safety meeting is conducted daily, by Oak Creek’s Safety Director, and typically involves existing safety regulations, project site policies, and all other past or present experiences that are relevant to the project, industry, or work being completed. To merely comply with the bare minimums of our safety program is not acceptable. The success of Oak Creek work and safety depends on all persons performing their assigned responsibilities to the best of their ability at all times. This requires Oak Creek employees and management to meet or exceed the demands of our written safety program and policies. If you have Oak Creek on your job you will always have, Safety First!
