by an employee on a service call or by the leaders of our company regarding future action. We pride ourselves on our safety record and stress the priority of safety every day. Why? Because not only Robert C. Riley, President do we want our employees to be safe on the job when they interact with customers, we also want them to get home safely to their families. We have a safety manager and several safety specialists who monitor and encourage safe behavior and work strategies. Similarly, we want every product and service we provide to be of the highest quality. Quality includes using trained personnel for each project and making sure we comply with all electrical codes and standards. We want it done right and done efficiently the first time. This provides the highest value to our customer – they get the best service for the best price in the most effective and efficient way possible. If something doesn’t add value for our customer, we don’t do it. It’s as simple as that.
