Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

URETEK Holdings Inc., a foundation stabilization and infrastructure rehabilitation company based in Lakeland, FL, announced today that it received a 0.75 Experience Modification Rate (EMR) safety rating, an improvement from its previous rating of 0.76, by the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI).

EMR is determined by comparing past insurance claims history of similar companies in a specific industry. The rating is evaluated annually and given by the NCCI, the nation’s most experienced provider of workers compensation information, tools and services. The industry average EMR is 1.0 and to have a lower EMR means the company is performing better than industry average.

“URETEK Holdings’ employees work in a challenging and ever-changing project environment that requires constant focus on safety,” states Richard T. Kelecy, URETEK’s Chief Operating Officer. “With safety as our number one focus, all employees receive extensive safety training and our foremen ensure that our teams are prepared before the start of every project.”

“We incent and reward a strong safety culture that benefits our employees and our customers at URETEK Holdings,” states CEO, Kathleen Shanahan. “Our operations team continually undergoes safety training and daily safety briefings to ensure they have the skills, knowledge and focus to keep themselves and their colleagues safe. Improving upon an already stellar EMR is a testament to the dedication and execution by our entire team and I know our customers appreciate it.”

URETEK Holdings’ 0.75 EMR rating will be effective as of May 10th, 2015. This is the third straight year
in which URETEK has had no lost-time incidents.

URETEK’s proprietary polymer formulations are used in a wide variety of applications, including slab lifting and underground void filling, storm/waste drain restoration, soil erosion control, emergency infrastructure restoration (dams, spillways, and levees), and culvert, pipe, and manhole sealing.
