A Safe Ethic

Safe construction practices are fundamental to R&H's work culture. Setting our sights on zero injuries, we work together to do the job right and protect ourselves from injury, realizing this leads to cost savings and increased productivity. The well being of everyone involved is our main motivator, while our impeccable safety record is simply a reflection of our core values.

Safety Break for Oregon. On the day of OR-OSHA's annual Safety Break, R&H field and office employees gather on job sites to reiterate the importance of safety.

Setting the Standard

R&H’s highly respected behavior-based safety program has set the standard for contractors in our region. Our program goes beyond policies and regulations, incorporating education opportunities, coaching and management involvement. Employees keep safety at the forefront by attending monthly safety related seminars, taking part in OSHA’s 10-Hour Safety Training Program and communicating safety with their supervisors, the R&H safety committee and executives during regular jobsite tours. The efforts of our entire team were recognized when the AGC awarded R&H with the Recognition of Safety Excellence (ROSE) Award in 2007 and 2008.

“R&H has set new standards for safety excellence. Their cumulative safety performance is astonishing: a loss ratio dozens of points below the industry standard, an experience modification factor less than half the industry average, and an accident incident rate in the fractions of a percentage point.“
