Historically speaking, we’ve always worked with safety at RIVAL. We have simply encased it in a different concept, which we call “to think about”. We work daily with practical considerations about lifting, posture, handling of heavy items, placement of tools, lights, accident hazards, the use of coolant/lubricant, waste, noise, etc.. The goal is to actively reduce accident risks.
RIVAL is located in a village area in rural zones, and we show great respect for our surroundings and nearest neighbors. We comply with all applicable environmental rules and make ongoing investments to stay ahead of minimizing the environment impact.
