L.B. Foster Company (NASDAQ: FSTR), a leader in rail technologies and services, has been awarded the RAVS Plus® recognition by ISNetworld (ISN), one of the largest global safety compliance groups. 

RAVS® is a safety compliance standard that stands for “Review and Verification Services” and is used to verify the effectiveness of health & safety programs, where currently a limited percentage of contractors have earned. Participation in the RAVS Plus® program is by invitation only and recognizes a company for outstanding commitment to safety.

Requested on behalf of Class I rail and several industrial customers, earning RAVS Plus® illustrates that L.B. Foster is creating value beyond our products, and attests that we have undergone a higher level of scrutiny for the site safety of our contracting services.

“L.B. Foster is proud to have been awarded ISNetworld’s RAVS Plus® designation for safety practices, and assuring our customers that we are delivering safe on-site services,” said Greg Lippard, Sr. VP - Rail.

With the dedication of an EHS-focused internal team, L.B. Foster representatives participated in an intensive two-hour audit with ISN with zero deficiencies identified. Our successful results were a combination of administrative internal controls, training, procedures, and policies, as well as the knowledge of our rail service technicians who were also audited on their knowledge of health & safety practices pertaining to their work environments.

“The entire RAVS Plus® process was a team effort. As on-site contractors installing and maintaining equipment, our customers can have the peace of mind that our rail service technicians are fully trained and knowledgeable in safe practices to avoid incidents,” said James Tanner, Director of Rail Services.

The audit consisted of a deep dive into safety policies, procedures, compliance, and training at the Company. Another positive outcome of the ISN recognition is the recognition that Company culture model SPIRIT led by safety, was externally validated.
