Every project is different.
Every solution is different.
Committed to Safety
The safety of the public — and our team members — is essential. Rizzo Corporation will never compromise on safety for any other project objective.
Our Safety Plan incorporates our belief that Quality, Production, Efficiency, Security, and Safety are planned into each project and have equal importance in the execution of the project. Our program goal is to achieve Zero Losses, avoiding injury, property damage, lost productivity, and occupational illnesses within a safe and secure environment. Safety Management requires focus on prevention, continuous improvement of the management process, team problem solving, and the involvement of our employees at all levels; we work closely with our partners in the project development process. Rizzo employees, subcontractors, and vendors are required to utilize the planning, communication, and monitoring tools necessary and provided to establish and implement our Safety Program from project inception through project acceptance.
Rizzo trains its employees to higher levels than industry standards, and we hold our subcontractors to the same standard. Rizzo Corporation employs a dedicated safety staff empowered with the authority and responsibility to administer and implement our zero tolerance, project-specific safety plans. The Safety Director reports directly to the Rizzo President and CEO and has the full authority to direct Rizzo and Subcontractor staff to immediately cease all work until potential hazardous conditions are corrected.
With safety as a key priority, Rizzo carries the following certifications:
All employees are OSHA 10 and supervisors are OSHA 30 certified.
CPR and First Aid
Metro North Rail Road safety
