Safety Programs

Richard Industrial Group provides many differing services, but the safety program is a common thread woven into every aspect of our work. Safety always comes first. That is a core value here. Management understands that a successful safety program must start at the top. That’s why they’re actively involved in and devoted to providing our employees and clients with the support and guidance of well-trained safety professionals. These objectives are constant and a vital part of day-to-day operations at Richard Industrial Group. It is our belief that all accidents are preventable, so we are committed to a goal of zero incidents. This commitment is a condition of employment: no job is so important that it cannot be done safely. We empower each employee to be responsible for safety. Our philosophy is that our employee’s belief, support and active engagement in our safety processes and procedures are essential to our successful safety record.

Our integrated initiatives to execute each project safely include:

  • Pre-Project Safety Planning – Allows management and employees to design a safety program around the specific demands of each project, operations, and site.
  • Employee Selection and Hiring Program – Keeps “at risk” direct and subcontract employees (employees) off each job site.
  • Substance Abuse Screening Program (DISA) – Assists in ensuring all supervisors and employees are allowed to work in a substance abuse-free environment.
  • Safety Orientation and Training Program – Ensure all supervisors, employees and subcontractors know the site-specific safety plan and requirements.
  • Safety Recognition Program – Creates a positive incentive for reducing “at risk” behavior.
  • Record Keeping and Follow-up Program – Enables us to monitor the effectiveness of the safety plan and to identify any weaknesses for pro-active resolution.
  • Accident, Injury and Near-Miss Investigations – Conducted by management and employees as they focus on “fact finding” rather than “fault finding”.
  • Management Support at All Levels – Reinforces a safety culture through leadership, funding commitment, personal interaction with employees, and visible participation at site audits and safety-related events.
  • Employee Responsibility and Empowerment – Charges all employees with the power and the obligation to stop all work around unsafe behavior or conditions.
