One Million Hours without a Lost Time Accident

Gribbins Insulation’s first priority on every job site is safety, and this dedication has resulted in a major milestone.  As of June 1, 2010, we have worked 1,000,000 consecutive hours without a lost time accident.  These accident-free hours have been logged since October 2007 – two and a half years of no lost time!

Our safety manager, Trevor Atherton, believes that the success of our safety program is due primarily to excellent communication.  As he said, “From the office to the field employees, the importance of safety is continually emphasized, and our President, Jim Gribbins, is fully dedicated.”  According to Trevor, this communication begins with the interactive new hire training program.  As Trevor explains, “We do not just show a video or open a book.  Our new hires have the opportunity to review the manual with the trainer and ask questions.  This focused time and attention ensures understanding and reinforces our commitment to safety with every employee.”

Our field employees are the ones who live and breathe our safety program each and every day.  Tony Barnes, an insulator for over 15 years, feels that the best part of the Gribbins Insulation Safety Program is that we “genuinely care about the safety of employees and making sure everyone gets home safe. “  He adds, “The safety program is not just something in writing at Gribbins.  There is a true commitment to work and live safely.”  Rick Beck has been an insulator for over 20 years, and his favorite part about our safety program is simple: “I like the fact that it’s successful – Gribbins stresses the importance of safety and it works.”
