R. H. White strives to be the construction company of choice that our customers and employees can rely on today and well into the future. For me, it’s about providing for our families and keeping them safe, giving back to those around us, and preserving the environment for future generations.
I am proud to be the third-generation owner surrounded by committed employees who focus on long-term sustainable growth of the organization. Take a few moments to see some of the ways that we’re dedicated to ensure R.H. White will thrive for another 95 years.
Chairman & Treasurer
Safety all day, every day – it is what our families, friends and clients expect. We emphasize positive safety behaviors and acknowledge those employees who go above and beyond. Additionally, when emphasizing the safety of our employees, customers see benefits in decreased costs, increased productivity, and increased quality of work.
Under the direction of our Manager of Safety and four full-time safety officers, we provide ongoing safety training, site-specific safety plans, and routine analyses of job-site safety. A safe workplace fosters an efficient workforce—and that leads to high quality results for our customers.
Some additional programs include:
Engaged employees are happier – at work, at home and wherever their activities and interests take them outside of the workplace.
At R.H. White, our employees are actively involved in planning at all levels, are offered continuous learning opportunities and receive regular cross-departmental communication to actively increase participation and engagement levels throughout the organization.
We do not claim to be trend setters, but we do believe in and place value on our employees and their job satisfaction. Just a few of the comprehensive skills development and training programs we offer:
At R.H. White, our trucks aren’t the only thing that is green. We are committed to environmentally sustainable elements in our building projects and minimizing waste from our worksites. We support our clients’ growing demands for cleaner, more cost-efficient fuels by servicing the thriving natural gas, LNG, CNG, and landfill industries. We demonstrate our environmental stewardship and social responsibility by participating in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building projects.
The quality of our nation’s water supply is equally, if not more important. For decades, R.H. White has been one of the premier companies in New England for the construction and upgrading of water and wastewater treatment plants.
A few of our internal sustainability practices include:
As a family-owned company, we understand the importance of inclusion and that a person that feels connected and supported pays that forward in society. We also understand that social well-being spreads beyond our company walls. Supporting efforts to help others in our neighborhoods and around the world, we routinely organize charitable events involving employees and their families. In addition, we provide funds, labor, equipment, and other resources for a wide range of local and national causes and outreach programs.
We encourage you to take a closer look at some of the ways in which our company and our employees pay it forward by visiting our Giving Back Page.
