At Roers, the bare minimum is never enough and that is how we treat safety as well. Our safety program is more than just words in a manual, it is how we do business. Safety is engrained in our core values and it is how we work. Roers stands out in the construction industry because we go above and beyond OSHA requirements, we strive for an injury free work environment. Roers is a strong believer in OSHA’s Mission: To ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and providing training, outreach, education and assistance. Safety is supported by all in our company from our CEO down to our newest employee. Roers has three safety committees that work with each company entity to help guide our safety program.
When you see a Roers job site you will notice our team members have all the safety PPE on. We choose our subcontractor carefully as well to ensure they respect and abide by our safety practices. Working together is how everyone stays safe. Andrew St. John, is the Safety Manager at Roers.
