How We Set Our Safety Standards

Each NRE employee is brought up through our safety training programs and courses before setting foot on the job. We understand and strive to ingrain our safety culture and the value of maintaining a safe workplace in each of our leaders, departments, and field crews.

To ensure that we are consistent and taking care of the needs of our various customers, we proactively offer:
