Safety Standards

At Windemuller, we consider safety to be our number one priority. We require each new employee to undergo a regiment of safety training courses, from first aid, to fire safety, to working in specific, stressful construction environments, assigned on an individual basis depending on the worker’s job function in the company. In addition, every worker must participate in ongoing safety education, with six courses required each year beyond the introductory materials. These requirements have helped Windemuller greatly in its goals of eliminating the causes of all workplace injuries, providing a safe work environment with no potential of injury, and abiding by all regulations set forth by federal, state, and local standards.

In July 2022, Windemuller achieved the milestone of 500,000 safe working hours. Safe working hour milestones are based on the number of total labor hours tracked by a company without any recordable Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) injuries. 

A commitment to safety

Windemuller has been praised for its ongoing commitment to safety and workplace awareness, receiving an average EMR safety rating of .86 over the past five years, and inspiring Berends, Hendricks, Stuit Insurance Agency to declare:

“The high priority you have placed on workplace safety and the investment you have made in employee safety education have had a major influence in the low frequency and severity of workers compensation incidents.”

Berends, Hendricks, Stuit Insurance Agency

With our efforts redoubled and our commitment to our employees’ well-being as strong and pronounced as ever, we only hope to see our number of workplace accidents decrease in the years to come.
