Safety Drives Our Success

It is our core belief that a project cannot be successful if the health and safety of our employees is not the number one priority. To that end, Rycon works diligently at all levels throughout our organization to improve our safety culture by educating and training our staff , establishing safety working protocols, and empowering our employees to identify and correct workplace hazards. It is instilled throughout our company that no project or deadline is more important than an individual’s well-being. Although we staff full-time safety professionals, it is part of our culture for every employee at Rycon to take on the role as safety manager. Construction can be a dangerous industry, and we will continue to adapt and innovate to keep our employees and everyone on our job sites as safe as possible. One injury is one too many, and we won’t settle for anything less.
