As general contractors, Right Choice Development and Construction is 100% safety focused with an in-house safety department. Our team is our biggest asset. The health and safety of our crews — and our customers — is paramount.
Every May from the 1st to the 5th, we take the opportunity to reemphasize hazard mitigation and fall prevention, especially from soaring and elevated heights, during the Safety Stand-Down construction campaign.
Our vice president and safety leader, James Wright, oversees our initiatives 1.) as a supplement to our weekly safety training, 2.) to ensure safe construction worksites, 3.) to demonstrate our commitment to best practices, and 4.) to maintain our stellar safety track record.
