At RIHC, not only do we strive to provide a safe, healthy, and incident-free work environment, we EXPECT it.
We take our responsibility to keep our employees, clients, subcontractors, and the general public surrounding our jobsites, very seriously. We all have families and friends who depend on us and expect us to come home at the end of each day in the same condition in which we arrived to work that morning, or better. From new-hire orientation and monthly safety training to weekly safety toolbox talks and daily safety task analyses, we continuously focus on safety in all aspects of our business.
The following safety philosophies are engrained in every RIHC employee from day one:
Safety is Everyone’s Responsibility
Stop Unsafe Acts
Take Personal Responsibility & Communicate
Do the Right Thing Every Time
We empower and EXPECT our employees to stop work and speak up when they have a safety concern. Their future employment with RIHC depends on it. Through frequent safety training and enforcing personal accountability, we ensure that each employee understands safety, uses safe work practices, and stops any unsafe acts.
Zero Incidents is not our goal, it is our EXPECTATION, which may seem unattainable to some at first; however, by pre-planning construction activities, identifying potential hazards and coming up with solutions before construction even begins, an expectation of Zero Incidents is not nearly as impossible to realize.
