Outreach - PRG Group


When it comes to Safety at PRG, our priorities never stop at the internal level. Physical and mental health bear equal weight to safety. We strive to further the understanding and knowledge of our trade partners and community through personalized and open-door trainings. In doing so, we not only continue to foster a strong safety culture within our doors but promote other individuals to build awareness and genuine care for the wellbeing of their coworkers, trade partners, and neighbors. At the end of the day, it is our ambition to keep our fellow Montanans safe and healthy on and off the clock.

We do not look at Safety as a competition, but rather a common goal to be collectively achieved.

Community Outreach - Suicide Prevention Seminar

Montana has the second highest suicide rate in the country. Construction and extraction have the second highest suicide rate, almost four times the rate of other professions.

PRG teamed up with Dick Anderson Construction, Williams Plumbing, and the Montana Department of Labor to sponsor a Failsafe for Life- ASIST seminar in Belgrade. This Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated course designed by LivingWorks to help caregivers recognize and review risk and intervene to prevent the immediate threat of suicide. It is by far, the most widely used, acclaimed, and researched suicide intervention training workshop in the world.

We were able to include participants from multiple construction companies and other industries. Participants were not only from the Gallatin Valley, but other Montana cities, including Butte, Helena, Lewistown, and Great Falls. The event was a great success not only for PRG, but for our industry and our community.


" The effort and commitment the PRG Group has demonstrated is courageous and exciting… Safety needs to be a priority and a commitment in the construction industry, and it is very difficult to change the culture within an organization/industry, unless having 100% dedication, effort, and continuously improving safety awareness to all parties involved on a project. Based on several data factors, programs, leading by example, and leadership support, PRG Group has demonstrated that Safety is a priority within their organization and will continue to improve and bring a strong Safety Culture to their projects. "

" Working with The PRG Group and seeing them strive to improve in all things safety has not only improved the way our team functions on their jobs, but it has helped improve our safety culture across all aspects of our business. The PRG team has taken the time to educate, explain and provide feedback so that a high-quality safety standard isn’t an unobtainable goal, it is an awareness that sets our team and those around us up for success. "

Cornerstone Management Systems

" Cornerstone Management Services (CMS) has been a subcontractor operating through PRG for over 12-years. Though I am aware of numerous safety related improvements PRG has made for their internal team, I greatly appreciate the enormous outreach and support PRG has offered CMS and further detail how PRG, and more specifically, Chris Anderson, PRG Safety Director, goes above and beyond for their network of subcontractors. PRG has not only committed themselves to safety excellence within the workplace, but has helped their network, community, and industry with thorough safety related outreach and education thus creating a culture of safety which will echo throughout the Gallatin and Madison County for years to come. "

Paul A. Williamson - Director of Business Development

Cornerstone Management Services

" PRG implementation of safety and compliance on job sites is of the best I have seen. They regularly keep all crews on task with regular safety meetings and theirTake 5 initiative helps head off trouble before it has a chance. Signage and compliance checks are always present and up to date. Really appreciate a company that cares for all people on their job sites! "
