Our Safety Commitment
Our vigorous and effective incident and injury prevention program includes detailed planning, organization, communication, and visible leadership. In addition, Richard management continually affirms that our commitment to safety is ingrained into every level of our company by conducting routine safety audits and continual safety training programs.
We share a personal and professional commitment to protecting the safety and health of our RIG family, our contractors, our clients and the people of the communities in which we work.
Richard 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.
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.
