Safety Excellence

R&L Development

R&L Development Company

has made a Commitment to send every employee home SAFE at the end of the day.  The Proactive approach that R&L Development Company strives for is a proven fact by our Safety Performance.  R&L Development has achieved a very favourable Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of 0.78. A company’s EMR is a numeric representation of their safety record, taking into account the number of claims or injuries a company has had in the past year, and the corresponding costs. A low EMR demonstrates a company with a good safety track record and high standards in employee safety and training. The industry benchmark EMR is 1.0.  The company’s low EMR has been attained due to a comprehensive safety and training program that is driven by our highly motivated management team.
