2009 Pinnacle Safety Award
The Indiana Construction Association (ICA) recently selected seven Gold Summit Award winners for achievements in safety as best in their categories for 2009. From the seven recipients, Gribbins Insulation Company, Inc. was chosen by the ICA Safety Program Awards Selection Committee for the ICA’s highest safety award: the Pinnacle Safety Award – representing the “Overall Leader in Construction Employee Safety.”
Employees and supervisors of contractors/subcontractors throughout Indiana vying for this award were confidentially surveyed to test how well the company’s safety program is understood and implemented. ICA Director of Contractor Relations George Sheraw said, “Gribbins Insulation Company was clearly ranked best overall by the judges. The judges commented that they were impressed by the consistent responses received from the confidential worker and supervisor surveys that were completed by the Gribbins Insulation company employees.” One of the judges stated – “It’s clear that at Gribbins Insulation, they talk safety all day, every day. From top to bottom they are committed to safety.” By winning this award, we demonstrated that we have a well-written safety program that is understood by employees and effectively implemented on the job.
Safety Manager, Trevor Atherton and Vice President, Brian Willett accepted the award on November 19, 2009, at ICA’s annual membership meeting. In February and March 2010, President Jim Gribbins, Vice President Brian Willett and Safety Manager Trevor Atherton held presentations and panel discussions for ICA members.
