Safety

When it comes to contract execution at any of the Irex companies, safety is a core value.

All companies in the Irex Contracting Group strive to complete every task, and ultimately every project, with zero incidents.  Safety is what gets employees home at the end of a long day. And Safety is what makes Irex companies the top choice in the construction industry.

Safety begins with a top-down commitment and accountability at every organizational level.  This shared responsibility philosophy creates a safety culture of ownership. Assisting in these efforts are field safety managers in individual Irex Contracting Group companies, as well as a full-time Irex staff of safety and risk management professionals.

In 2016, the Irex Contracting Group achieved an OSHA recordable incident rate of 1.54 and a rate of 1.03 for cases involving days away, restrictions, or transfer (DART).  Our most recent EMR is 0.55

As a reference, the U. S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) latest estimate of non-fatal injuries and illnesses for Special Trades Contractors (NAICS 2389) is 3.6 for total recordable cases and 2.3 for DART cases.
