At East Coast Rigging

Safety Is Our Top Priority

Where safety isn’t just a requirement, it’s personal. We care about the health and well-being of our employees, customers, and the communities where we work.

For that reason, we have a robust safety program that ensures that each of our employees is equipped with the tools and resources they need to complete their jobs as safely as possible. 

Our Culture

At ECRS, we foster a safety culture where everyone—from field technician to manager to customer—feels comfortable asking questions and addressing their concerns. We understand that communication matters. For that reason, we cultivate an environment of open communication where every member of our team knows that their voice counts and takes ownership over their performance.

Most importantly, we want our customers to be completely satisfied not just with the quality of our work but with the safety and performance of our crews and equipment. We deeply value feedback from our customers and are always seeking to improve our processes so we can continue to be the premier provider of access solutions on the East Coastand beyond.  

ECRS Safety Programs

From onboarding to continuing education, each employee receives ongoing safety training and mentorship, including fall protection, confined space, first aid, CPR, AED, OSHA 10, OSHA 30, OSHA 510, and ANSI certification. In addition, our safety director and field supervisors conduct regular safety audits of both ongoing and completed jobs. During each audit, our team ensures that our crews are complying with all safety requirements and industry best practices. 

Planning & Job Hazard Analysis: The ECRS Job Planning Process consists of site hazard assessments, site safety plans, and job hazard analyses (JHA). Every ECRS employee is recognized as a safety representative first and foremost and is expected to address each task with safety awareness through our job JHA process, which is designed to recognize hazards and eliminate or mitigate them prior to executing tasks. Through these processes, we empower our employees to take ownership over their tasks and their outcomes, and we ensure their concerns are heard and addressed.
Safety Behavior Observation Process: This proactive tool helps us identify and correct behaviors in the workplace that could lead to poor decisions in the hazard recognition and control process. The immediate goal of our Safety Behavior Observation Process is to stop accidents before they happen. We accomplish this goal by identifying potential hazards associated with the environment, project, or work practices and coaching employees on the correct behaviors to work safely. 
Monitoring & Training: Safety training is conducted as a part of every new hire orientation. In addition, task, site, environmental, compliance, and best practices training are continuous and ongoing every day. At thousands of jobsites across the East Coast, jobsite inspections, employee observations, safety meetings, and toolbox talks occur regularly. Our safety culture is built on mentorship and open communication, and we continually look for opportunities to improve our processes together.
