United Riggers and Erectors, Inc.
United Riggers and Erectors, Inc. recognizes the need to continuously emphasize safety training. Owners & Construction Managers are aware of the need for on the job safety, and comply with all government regulations.

URE’s philosophy is that “safety first” is the foundation of any successful construction company. Implementing and adhering to a strict safety program creates a healthier and more efficient workforce. These two factors lower our insurance costs which translates into more competitive rates for our customers.

All of URE’s foremen conduct weekly safety “tailgate meetings” during which a specific safety topic is discussed prior to beginning work. Some of the specific topics include:

- Personal Fall Arrest Systems
- Holes and Floor Openings
- Compressed Gas Cylinders
- Concrete Safety
- Torches
- Tag out/Lock out

URE is also a member of the I.M.P.A.C.T. (Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust) Drug Testing Program. Through this program, an outside contractor drug tests all Ironworkers, and posts the names of the eligible employees on a website. All Ironworkers hired by URE must be on this list. This guarantees that our workforce is drug-free.

URE’s Safety Program uses Cal/OSHA regulations as a guideline, and, in many cases, exceeds the stringent guidelines set by Cal/OSHA. The following are some items covered in our Safety Program:

- First Aid / CPR
- Fall Protection
- Electrical Safety
- Job Hazard Analysis
- Confined Space Entry
- Hazardous Communication
