The Real ROI of In-House Safety Training

Posted by Luke Ploessl on Tue, Mar 6, 2018

Getting Your Money’s Worth

At Brennan, training is the backbone of our safety program, and we have come to discover a high return on investment by bringing much of our training in-house. Doing this helps us prepare our workforce for our unique work features, which in the long run, lowers our Experience Modification Rate (EMR). A company’s EMR is a number used by insurance companies to determine the past cost of injuries and any future chance of risks.

We believe one of the reasons we achieve such a low EMR is because we focus on quality when it comes to training.
