We Don’t Cut Corners

At Berglund Construction, we believe risk is always manageable.   As part of our zero-accident culture, we proactively work to avoid accidents and incidents. As a result, both the owner and Berglund can enjoy problem-free projects and lower insurance costs.

In 2002, we engaged in a comprehensive makeover of our safety and risk management processes that included implementing numerous safety-related processes and procedures and affecting companywide cultural and behavioral changes to achieve our safety objectives.

Through hard work, effort and a true change in our culture, our EMR is now at .62. The EMR is a rating plan insurance companies use to recognize the workers’ compensation experience between individual employers. An employer with an EMR of 1.00 is average, with less than 1.00 above average, and higher than 1.00 below average.
