Health and Safety
The health and safety of our employees is of paramount importance. We exercise a strict health and safety policy to ensure our work activities internally and externally are completed with minimal risk. We actively encourage employees throughout the organisation, and even site visitors, to challenge any unsafe practice. 

All staff at Ritchie are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our activities. This is achieved by minimising our energy usage, minimising material scrap, maximising recycling and minimising our CO2 emissions through fleet management. 

Quality in our design, fabrication and service are vital elements which make our business different. We are proud of our products and take pride in providing our customers with outstanding service. Operating and accredited to ISO BS EN 9001:2008, we are also regularly audited by our customers and organisations such as DNV and Aprigaz.

Local Community
We strive to promote local business links within our own community, as well as the wider east coast of Scotland. One of our Directors, Tony Walker, is a founding member of the newly established Tayside Engineering Network which promotes sharing engineering best practice and business networking. We were also founders of the Angus Training Group (ATG) and have always had a Director on the ATG board.
