At R&T Ellis, Inc., safety is always our number one priority. The civil contracting and excavating industry requires the use of extremely heavy, sophisticated equipment and the transport of massive amounts of earth and other materials. Frequently utilities lines or pipelines carrying volatile substances are also involved. As a result there is potential risk for significant accidents and injuries if employees are not well trained and supervised. R&T Ellis is fully compliant with all OSHA safety standards and has gone the extra mile to ensure that a strong culture of safety is in place at our company. Employees at all levels are encouraged to take an active role in safety and accident prevention and no one is ever allowed on jobsites without thorough training and all appropriate safety gear. Our supervisors are vigilant to spot hazardous behaviors or employees who are not fit for duty that day. We also conduct rigorous risk and safety assessments before beginning any job. Safety is a daily concern and is foremost on our minds every step of the way during a project. Every accident is preventable and even just one injury is one too many. R&T Ellis also utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques to ensure not only maximum efficiency and productivity, but also unwavering safety. This allows us to get the job done faster and better, with lower costs, and without incident. Nothing but complete success, especially in the realm of safety, is ever enough for R&T Ellis. These practices and the culture of safety surrounding them allow R&T Ellis to prevent accidents and the costly human and financial toll they take. As a result we are able to pass savings along to our clients while also creating a safe, positive work environment for our employees.
