On November 8, 2011, the Construction Users Roundtable honored Gribbins Insulation as one of the 2011 Construction Industry Safety Excellence award winners. Megan Knoll, Director of Marketing, accepted the award for us during the CURT National Conference at The Wild Horse Pass Resort in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) is an association of leading corporations dedicated to the promotion of cost-effective construction methods. The members, as major consumers of construction services such as Marathon Petroleum and Duke Energy, seek to foster improved construction safety performance through recognition of the achievement of excellence and the promotion of proven effective work practices.
The Construction Industry Safety Excellence (CISE) awards program seeks to encourage efforts to improve safety by recognizing safety leaders in all segments of the construction industry. Award applications were distributed to CURT members as well as leading national contractor associations and local construction user councils throughout the United States and Canada.
CURT Executive Vice President Gregory Sizemore presented the CISE awards to three categories of contractors, as well as three owners and five construction projects. Other winners included such well-known companies as Eli Lilly, Proctor & Gamble, and Merck & Co. See the full list of winners here: http://www.curt.org/Awards-Safety-CISE-Awards.aspx
At Gribbins Insulation, maintaining a safe working environment is the responsibility of every employee, from the company president to the newest hire. All employees have the right and responsibility to fully understand each of their assigned tasks, stop work if they spot an at-risk condition, and return home to their families in the same condition as they arrived at work. As Trevor Atherton, our Safety Manager, emphasizes, “Our safety program works. Not a single lost workday case since 2007. We are proof that even a mid-sized insulation contractor can develop and maintain a successful and extensive safety program.”
This is the third safety award we have received in the past month, and we expect to receive another next week.
Zero Injury Safety Awards: On October 26, we received three Zero Injury Certificates of Merit from the National Maintenance Agreement Policy Commitee for our 194,000+ hours of work at the Alcoa Warrick Generating Station, at the Duke Energy Edwardsport jobsite, and IP&L in Petersburg, Indiana.
Named one of America’s Safest Companies: EHS Today, a national magazine devoted to safety and health, honored us as one of America’s Safest Companies at the awards ceremony on October 31.
