Our Commitment

At Superior Rigging & Erecting Co., our dedication to rigging safety goes beyond just operations. We are committed to a safety-first mindset in all that we do because we value our employees not just in our company's success but also as human beings critical to the success of their families and the local community. Every piece of equipment, every safety protocol, and every decision is made with our employees' well-being at the forefront. We firmly believe the safety of our employees, the environment, the public, our clients, and our subcontractors cannot be compromised by our involvement with heavy loads and rigging operations. For this reason, we will always place safety ahead of production goals. If a job cannot be accomplished safely, it will not be done.

Superior Standards

We are often the highest risk trade on any project, which is why we are dedicated to rigging safety best practices, outlined in all OSHA standards and our detailed Health & Safety Manual. This safety manual encompasses everything from basic rigging to specialized crane operations. We hold our crew to the most rigorous standards, ensuring that every crane operator understands safe rigging practices with our equipment. Expectations and safety requirements are discussed every day on the job during morning team huddles, through weekly toolbox talks, monthly safety updates, and quarterly safety meetings. We teach our team to act with the mindset that EVERY decision made has an impact.

Job Site Safety

Every construction project has its unique set of challenges, and with our involvement in complex rigging operations, there is a need for extensive job site safety. All field workers must hold a minimum OSHA 10 certification before setting foot on any construction site. Beyond certification, we implement construction site safety protocols using tools like Pre-Task Planning and Job Safety Analysis. Whether it's making sure the right rigging equipment is in place or checking if the load weights adhere to safety standards, it's all done with safety in mind. Proper construction PPE must be worn at all times in our warehouse, in the yard, and on all work sites. This guarantees that all rigging supplies, from overhead cranes to hoists, function safely and effectively.

Our People

Safety isn't just a protocol; it's a part of our company culture, with people at its core. Our full-time Corporate Safety Director, an OSHA 500 Competent Person, is responsible for ensuring every qualified rigger is aware and trained on safety practices and protocols. They also make sure that all work sites and company departments meet or exceed all compliance with OSHA, EPA, DOT, fire codes, and state and federal regulations and guidelines. Our commitment to safety and Superior standards, coupled with our people, poise our company to maintain a zero-accident attitude. Our strong reputation in the industry shows that we take pride in hiring union employees with extensive safety training, competency, and a commitment to our company's safety standards.


The emphasis on rigging safety is a large aspect of our company culture, and our team of employees deserves a workplace where safety isn’t a concern. Every piece of lifting equipment undergoes detailed maintenance and periodic inspections to make sure they operate correctly and safeguard operators against potential hazards and injuries. This commitment not only guarantees the seamless execution of projects but also strengthens the trust and reputation we’ve built in the industry. In addition, our focus on safety makes us the best place for a qualified person to work and for clients to hire for their rigging and erecting projects. Rigging safety is more than a responsibility; it’s one of our core principles.


When it comes to rigging and erecting projects, SRE stands out for our decades of experience and our commitment to safety. Our goal is to make sure that every project is completed with well-maintained equipment and proper rigging techniques. You can trust that with every project we undertake, you’re choosing a partner that prioritizes reliability, efficiency, and above all, safety in the workplace.
