Recognized for our

Leadership in Safety

RGD is a Carolina Star Site

Carolina Star companies are recognized as worksites that are self-sufficient in their ability to control hazards at the worksite.

Safety in Renovations

Renovations pose many additional safety issues than new construction. Even though a majority of our projects are renovations, we've maintained an impeccable safety record.

NCDOL Building Star Award

RGD is a recipient of North Carolina Department of Labor Building Star Award. There are less than 20 recipients in North Carolina.

Continuously Recognized

We've been keeping an impeccable safety record for more than a decade—  receiving 17 consecutive years of recognition by the North Carolina Department of Labor.

How Do We Maintain Our Impeccable Safety Record?

  • Before beginning any project, we develop a project specific safety plan.
  • We review the Owner, RGD, and OSHA safety guidelines for each project. We choose the most stringent of the three to use throughout the project.
  • All of our subcontractors are prequalified and must meet the same safety standards as the RGD team.
  • No work is performed unless a full time, safety trained RGD employee is present.
  • A comprehensive job hazard analysis is performed and enforced with all work crews involved.
