In 2010 Wade Perrow Construction achieved an EMR of 0.60, the lowest possible rate for the number of reported worker hours, according to the company. The company ended the year with zero recordable accidents, and industry safety measures place WPC in the top 2 percent of all general contractors in Washington.

WPC credits the results to the dedication of its management and field staff. WPC’s safety ethic is promoted and repeated throughout the company, and safety holds the first position in its corporate mission statement.

Responsibility for safety is shared among every person on the job site.

WPC, an AGC Safety Team member, invites staff from the state Department of Labor and Industries onto its sites to promote safety awareness and show its commitment to the safety and health of the company’s employees and subcontractors.

Among WPC’s unconventional efforts to promote safety was its participation in AGC’s 2010 Safety Photo Contest, which it won.
