At Ketchikan Drywall Services, Inc., our number one priority is safety. We pride ourselves on having a comprehensive safety program that follows all of WISHA/OSHA’s rules and regulations. KDS is consistently modifying its safety program with innovate equipment and training to keep its impressive safety rating. For the past ten years, we have been better than the industry standard when it comes to L&I’s mod rating system. Below is a direct link to L&I’s website where you can view our excellent safety ratings from over the years.


Effective April 22, 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency stated that firms performing renovations, repairs, or painting in pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities must be certified and use lead-safe work practices. This federal law requires contractors working in those environments to be certified and use lead-safe work practices. KDS currently employs three people certified by the EPA in lead safety.


Safety Record

The link below shows the Worker’s Compensation Premium Status: Experience Factor History over the past ten years. The L&I website calculates an experience factor based off of comparing a company’s accident costs to the average costs of other companies in the same risk classification. An experience factor lower than 1.0, such as Ketchikan Drywall Services Inc. shows the company has a lower-than-average claim cost.
