White worked over 1.5 million hours in 2012, and the company’s Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) came in at 1.66 and its Experience Modification Rate (EMR) came in at 0.79, well below the industry averages of 3.5 and 1.0, respectively.
The companies of IEA have institutionalized a culture of safety, enabling them to operate in the most stringent and challenging work environments. “The supply chain logistics of the industry were heavily stretched with the expiration of the production tax credit (PTC) on December 31, 2012,” said Buddy White, President. “Significant high wind events required crews to work on a compressed schedule to meet the tight deadline. White’s construction teams were able to safely complete one hundred percent of our work commitments before the PTC expiration.”
