Higher safety standards, less risk.
Graham Roofing consistently has EMR scores far below the industry average. Over the last five years, our EMR has averaged .78. EMR, or Experience Modification Ratings, are used by insurance companies to measure the cost of injuries and future chances of risk.
OSHA compliant and more.
Every construction company answers to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Graham Roofing always meets OSHA standards and often goes beyond them. With no violations in six (6) years, our OSHA Incident Rating is well below the national average. That’s one reason why we have been honored as a “SHARP” recipient each year from 2009 to 2015 (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program).
Award-winning safety standards.
For the last six years (2010-2015), Graham Roofing has earned Platinum, Gold or Silver “STEP” Awards from the Associated Builder’s Contractors Association (ABC) on both, the local and national level.
