Leadership in roofing work safety has brought recognition to Riddiford Roofing as well. In 2015 and 2003, our firm proudly received the Chicago Roofing Contractor’s Association (CRCA) and Roofer’s Union Local 11 Joint Safety Committee’s highest award for safety. We actively participate in the CRCA/OSHA Joint Safety Program, which proactively brings our trade organization together with OSHA to address wide-ranging issues facing the roofing industry.
An effective safety policy begins with a firm Safety Program. Riddiford Roofing has developed the most comprehensive and complete written safety policy in our industry. This program has been developed in cooperation with OSHA and our local OSHA field offices to outline all aspects of safety relevant to our operations.
Each of our roofers, technicians, crane operators, drivers and support team members has completed at a minimum the OSHA 10-Hour Safety Course Certification. Moreover, each of our Foremen, First Men, Superintendents, company officers and Project Managers has completed the OSHA 30-Hour Certification—the most complete training OSHA provides. Each year we host two company-wide Safety meetings to refresh our employees on our policies, inform them of new programs being implemented, and provide training on specific field equipment. Local OSHA inspectors and officials attend each meeting.
As each jobsite presents unique safety challenges, specific jobsite safety plans are implemented for each project. We have hired a dedicated Safety Consulting Firm to plan and oversee each aspect of safety in the field. Regular and random safety meetings and jobsite inspections ensure that each of our safety-related goals are met and exceeded. This often involves field procedures that go above and beyond the guidelines provided by OSHA.
Each of the above descriptions reflects our total Commitment to Safety. This is just part of the total effort we make everyday to provide the best roofing services in the Midwest.
