Hunton implements a behavior-based Loss Prevention System. What is a Loss Prevention
The goal of an LPS is to prevent or reduce incidents, which are defined as either losses or near
losses, using behavior-based tools and proven management techniques. The behavior based
system utilizes a set of tools that identify and eliminate the factors and behaviors that lead to loss,
including injuries, property damage and operational inefficiencies.
We aim to keep our EMR and TRIR ratings at their current excellent levels. What is an
Experience Modifier Rating (EMR) or the Osha Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)?
The Experience Modification Rate is a number used by insurance companies to gauge both past
cost of injuries and future chances of risk. The lower the EMR of your business, the lower your
worker compensation insurance premiums will be. The TRIR is a commonly used indicator that
measures a company's Total Recordable Injury Rate and adjusts for the number of hours a facility
works. It does not matter how many employees there are, but is a function of the number of
recordable injuries and the numbers to hours worked (usually including salary and hourly). We are
consistently better than our industry average which is a TRIR of 4.00 and an EMR that is greater
Hunton requires a mandatory Job Safety Analysis for each job. What is a JSA?
A job safety analysis (JSA) is a procedure which helps integrate accepted safety and health
principles and practices into a particular task or job operation. In a JSA, each basic step of
the job is to identify potential hazards and to recommend the safest way to do the job.
