Nothing is more important to Rice Companies than the safety of everyone involved in the construction process. Our goal is simple – zero harm and zero lost time incidents. With that philosophy, we incorporate safety into almost everything we do, from pre-planning projects, ongoing safety training to a continuous improvement process, among many others. Rice’s safety philosophy extends not only to our employees and customers, but to every subcontractor and vendor we work with. We are proud to share our EMR factor of .68, among the lowest in our industry.

Rice’s Safety program includes:

  • Safety is an agenda item, not an afterthought during meetings
  • Employee Supervisors are OSHA 10 trained, at a minimum
  • A 3rd party professional safety firm assists in monthly mandatory safety meetings, jobsite audits and our continuous improvement process
  • Each new employee is required to pass a drug-screening test, ensure adequate physical capability and participate in a comprehensive safety orientation
  • Our safety committee meets regularly to review current safety protocols, recent jobsite inspections and update our rigorous safety standards
