Consistent with these values, PARIC advocates:
- A strong emphasis on safety training and expectations

- Employee responsibility, giving every employee the right and authority to stop work when an activity is being performed in an unsafe way
- A mandatory Substance Abuse Program which requires drug and alcohol testing of all employees, including pre-employment, random, reasonable cause and post accident
- Daily safety inspections conducted by trained on-site supervisors
- Daily safety discussions regarding the tasks to be performed and documented weekly safety meetings
- Construction operations conducted in strict adherence to federal, state and local safety policies and to specific PARIC safety policies
