Safety

KEMCO's exceptional safety record comes directly from our ongoing goal of “ZERO INJURIES AND ACCIDENTS ON EVERY JOB WE PERFORM”

What makes KEMCO’S safety program different than most is that owners Bill and Joe Johnston have performed and analyzed every task that their employees perform in the field. They continue to climb towers, help dig trenches, pull cable and accomplish many other tasks.

In the words of Bill and Joe: "We cannot ask someone to do a job we are not willing to do ourselves.  It makes a big difference to our crews that we personally instruct them on the importance of safety and that our ultimate goal is that they go home safe and sound to their families after the job is done."

KEMCO’s safety program was developed utilizing OSHA guidelines as well as our own hands-on experience.  We strive to eliminate all accidents and injuries on every project by over-seeing and working hand-in-hand with our Safety Manager and Team. We believe in building a culture in which our entire team is equal in authority and responsibility for every worker's safety.

KEMCO’s consistent and comprehensive safety practices have resulted in earning us one of the lowest Experience Modification Rates (EMR) in our industry.
