Safety is the number one priority at HRI. We try to go above and beyond OSHA standards in everything we do to ensure the safety of our employees, customers, and the general public. Weekly safety meetings are conducted in each HRI branch to provide training in all areas of safety. HRI employees always conduct a jobsite hazard analysis and risk assessment at the beginning of each job, identifying hazards and taking appropriate safety precautions. Jobsite-specific meetings are conducted by the foremen in each branch throughout the duration of the job. These meetings address safety issues related to specific jobsites and any safety changes needed as a result of the installation or roof repair process.
Many of HRI’s safety rules go above and beyond their OSHA requirements. Examples of some of the areas of safety training are:
- Fall Protection
- Hazardous Communication
- First Aid
- Forklift/Aerial Platforms
- Vehicle Safety
- Hot/Cold Working Conditions
HRI Management does everything possible to keep HRI employees and those around them in a safe environment. Jobsites are inspected regularly and inspections are performed by HRI management. Every HRI employee has the right to a safe and healthy work place. It is HRI policy that any employee can shut down a jobsite or work area if the conditions are unsafe.
HRI established safety committee groups within each branch to assist in monitoring, improving, and maintaining jobsite safety. The purpose of the safety committee is to bring employees and managers together to achieve and maintain a safe and healthy workplace. Committee participants review incidents, identify trends, and listen to employee suggestions and recommendations. The HRI Safety Committee is a place for HRI employees to express their safety concerns and help HRI remain a safe and healthy workplace.
