At Superior Rigging & Erecting Co., our dedication to safety is evident by our EMR of .86.

We firmly believe the safety of our employees, the environment, the public, our clients and our subcontractors cannot be comprimised by our involvement on a job site. For this reason, we will always place safety ahead of production goals.

If a job cannot be done safely, it will not be done.

Job Site Safety

All field workers must hold a minimum OSHA 10 certification to step foot on any construction site, though most of our employees hold OSHA-30.

Construction site safety protocols are followed using Pre-Task Planning and Job Safety Analysis.

Proper construction PPE must be worn at all times in our warehouse, in the yard and on all jobsites.
