Looking through accident statistics and accident photos on here, I noticed the ERJ has never been in a major crash with loss of life or hull. Now, I realize there are other types that also have clean accident records, but the ERJ has been in service for 14 years. Is there another passenger commercial aircraft that has been in service that long with that clean of a safety record?

Having a clean record and being the safest airplane are two very different questions. The former, people can list aircraft without any incident. The latter is probably impossible to answer in a meaningful way.
