Our Safety Approach

Safety is our top priority at RAWSO. It’s ingrained and prioritized at every level of our business, every day. Our company safety manager ensures all our employees go through an extensive safety program and all live project sites are adhering to our safety standards. We conduct thorough safety audits at each site, utilize the HCSS Safety monitoring app, and require safety meetings at the start of each day.

Our goal is to make every employee feel like they have a voice when it comes to safety on the job. Every person at RAWSO, as well as project contractors, has access to the HCSS Safety app, where they can make positive and negative safety observations. Once an observation is submitted, our safety director immediately receives a notification and is able to address the situation in real-time. We are always seeking ways to improve safety and empower every person at RAWSO to protect themselves, their team, and their work environment.

Our Safety Values

01

Loyalty

We’re only loyal to our family, team, and customers when we’re working safely. Being loyal to our team also means looking out for one another and making sure everyone around us is working safely too.

02

Do What's Right

The right thing to do is the safe thing to do. We always choose safety over production, profit, and schedule, with no exceptions.

03

Extreme Ownership

The safety of ourselves and our team is entirely our responsibility. We take ownership of ensuring our work is safe and thought out before we take action, and if we must correct amid work, we take immediate action to do so.

04

Pursue Excellence

Safety is about excellence. We can’t afford missteps when it comes to our wellbeing. We tirelessly think through and plan all safety details of each job and each day before and while we work.

05

Lead by Example

We keep those around us safe by leading by example. We don’t preach safety; we show it with our actions. Everyone’s always watching whether it be inexperienced team members, our customers, subcontractors, or the general public. We aim to be the best example of working safely that they’ve seen.

06

Be Humble

No one at RAWSO is too good to be safe and uphold our standards. Our standards apply to everyone, and we can’t afford ever to think we’re above them or that we know everything when it comes to safety.

07

Transparent Communication

Safety comes down to clear communication. It starts each morning with a clear and throughout discussion about the day’s work and the hazards associated. From there, it takes constant communication between everyone in our work areas, including people outside our team. There’s no safety without communication.

Daily Meetings

Daily safety meetings are a habit for all our crews, and they’re always documented online for review.

We're All Responsible

We teach our people to call one another out if they notice unsafe work — regardless of where they stand in the company.

Safety Certifications

Employees who complete OSHA 30 training on their own time automatically receive a $500 bonus.

Executive Oversight

Our executives have immediate online access to every safety document from the field, so there’s no lack of communication.

HCSS Safety

All RAWSO foremen rely on HCSS safety software to document meetings, JHAs, and potentially hazardous situations
Our most important goal is to ensure everyone at RAWSO and anyone we partner with gets home safely to their families. Our approach is grounded in empowering the entire team to take personal ownership for the well-being of themselves and those around them.
- Colton Richardson, Estimator and Safety Director, RAWSO
