Using Mod as Qualifier to Bid on Construction Projects (8/11)
The construction industry often uses the experience rating modification (commonly referred to as "EMR" in the construction trades) as a metric for safety prequalification programs. The ICRB issued a "white paper" in July 2011 discussing the issues related to this use, titled "EMR as Qualifier to Bid on Construction Projects".
The paper builds a convincing case for how the use of the experience rating mod can lead to an inaccurate picture of any particular company's safety performance. A question still to be answered is what is a good alternative predictive indicator for "safe" contractors if the mod is not used.
