We are committed to “doing the right thing the right way.” Each day we strive to make this part of our culture and to ensure that this approach takes precedence over short-term profits or simple convenience.

Finally, we not only comply with the letter, but also the spirit of all laws, codes and regulations affecting our business.
The safety of our workforce is our top priority. With a goal of zero-injury & zero-incident, our training programs incorporate fundamental safety principles that reinforce understanding and compliance with OSHA regulations and standards, knowledge of electrical hazards, and the importance of personal protective equipment and self-discipline. We have a Safety Committee that is responsible for obtaining employee input, setting annual safety goals, developing and auditing programs, setting training schedules, and updating policies and procedures.
Everyone at Rivers, from ownership to the newest employee, has responsibilities regarding their own safety as well as the safety of those they work with.
Projects are planned and performed with safety as a primary component. Before work begins, potentially hazardous situations are identified and adequate solutions are implemented. Regular job site monitoring and employee education are key to maintaining our focus on safety. Each field employee is required to be OSHA 10 certified, each field supervisor is required to be OSHA 30 certified.
The results of our approach to safety is evident in our incident rate and EMR which have been below the acceptable industry standards for many years. Rivers has been awarded the Associated Builders and Contractors’ Safety Training and Evaluation Program (STEP) Platinum Level for the past ten years.
The men and women who work at Rivers Electrical Corporation are the company. Their safety is our most important priority.
