A Commitment to Safety Starts at the Top
Safety begins with the active participation of the owners and managers of Long Painting Company. Empowering employees is a key element to our success, keeping awareness high by personally engaging each employee by providing regular communication and training.
Long Painting takes great pride in the quality of our team and is committed to the ongoing development of each employee. It is this ongoing development of our employees that creates a workforce that is not only safe but provides added value to our customers. Safe work practices make for efficient production.
Our successful safety program relies on these clear and well established goals:
This focus on defined goals is the reason that our award winning safety program continues to set the safety standard for specialty contractors across the nation.
A culture of good, safe decision making is shared by our entire team. We value a culture of integrity where employees recognize that each decision has an impact on their personal safety. Safe production is the ultimate goal and can only be achieved with teamwork.
We are a long standing self-insured employer in the state of Washington. This elite status is a result, in part, of an effective safety program, aggressive claims management, and thorough incident investigations to determine root cause and applicable corrective actions to eliminate reoccurrence. We stand as one of the only commercial and marine industrial painting contractors in Washington to achieve and maintain this status.
Long Painting Company perennially achieves a very low experience modification rate (EMR) as calculated by a third-party administrator. This low EMR is an objective evaluating measure to further demonstrate the overall effectiveness of a safety program.
Our company is proud of our current EMR of .17.
