This year is turning out to be an excellent one for the team over at Derrick Companies, the premier home builder in MN & WI. Our outstanding safety record has resulted in the Minimum Experience Modification Factor in calculating worker’s compensation insurance rates. It is important to recognize the crucial importance of safety in the workplace, which is why it is such an honor to be rewarded for work in this department. In many lines of work, you are expected to go on a course of some sort and receive a yellow card ticket in order to meet certain health and safety requirements. By going above and beyond for workplace safety, you can eventually end up being rewarded for your efforts. The Experience Modification Factor is based on the total worker compensation insurance premiums of an employer compared to previous losses that employer to the average loss of other employers located in the state and of the same business, adjusted for size. We were recognized because we are one of the safest places to work in custom homebuilding and have documented and measured safety records that surpass similar companies in Wisconsin. Derrick Companies is also the proud recipient of the Gold Safety Award. Chad, Corey, Kevin, and Ron proudly accepted this award on behalf of Derrick Companies from ABC-WI on February 5th at the SuperCon Conference. This award acknowledges companies who continue to display an ongoing commitment to job site safety. Safety performance and programs were judged by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) National Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Committee. Awards are based on data submitted by Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) applications, essay questions, and video interviews with company CEOs, presidents, and principal players about their corporate safety culture. The STEP program was started by contractors for fellow contractors. We at Derrick Companies take safety very seriously. Led by our Director of Safety, Tom Derrick, these awards are a testament to our safety practices, and our overall company mission and values. Derrick Custom Homes currently has six available homes for sale. Give us a call today at 715-246-2320 if you are interested in living in a home built by the safest home builder in MN & WI.
