The EMR rate, which stands for Experience Modification Rate is a calculation that insurers use to calculate workers compensation rates by evaluating a company's historical cost of injuries and future risk changes. The average EMR in construction is 1.000 and our current rate is 0.53. Out of 36,000+ contractors, UMC ranked as the #11 lowest EMR in construction (Washington State), and if you break out mechanical contractors, UMC ranks #3.

While it’s not always easy to do the safe thing, often taking courage to look out for ourselves and our peers with the pressure of daily tasks, it is always worth it. That’s why we step up to every challenge with careful planning and execution at every stage of a project. Our frontline workers, foremen, and project managers watch for any possible opportunity for improvement, frequently delivering outstanding innovations that have helped us become the most dynamic and advanced mechanical contractor in Washington.
