Safety:

All of the companies in the Railroad Group are dedicated to the idea that the primary objective in any workplace is “Safety First”.

Our companies continuously work to identify hazards and assess the risks with every new jobsite we encounter. The railroad Group strives to assert protective and preventive measures using safety allocated resources. Our plans and procedures for all emergencies beginning with First Aid / CPR and Emergency services are in place prior to the start of any job. Our companies encourage all of our employees to always work with safety as their primary concern at home and at work. We are all expected to safely perform tasks pursuant to company and client safety standards.

Every employee of the Railroad Group is trained to OSHA Construction Industry standards under the direction of our staff Safety Director who is a qualified OSHA Outreach instructor (OSHA 500 certified). Our employees are also required to be trained in 49 CFR 213/214 FRA Track Safety Standards/ Railroad Workplace Safety and Roadway Worker Protection safety to meet the annual training standards of CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern Railroad. Railroad Group employees must also complete annual training in Process Safety Management, which meets chemical and refining industry requirements; as well, as site specific training.

In addition, The Railroad group of companies meets and exceeds all security standards by having all employees processed through a third party background check (E-railsafe), attaining TWIC card’s (TSA), and being reviewed by the new I-9 verification program (E-verify).

The Railroad Group is a Drug and Alcohol Free Workplace.
