Our first priority in every project we work on is safety—for our customers and our employees. By nature roofing is a dangerous trade and we take each aspect of our work very seriously. We demand safe workers and provide them with the training and equipment necessary to keep our jobsites safe at all times for everyone.

Safety Program
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.

Training
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.

Customized
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.
