Gribbins Insulation representatives will be featured speakers at EHS Today’s America’s Safest Companies Conference on September 11 and 12, at McCormick Place in Chicago. Honored by EHS Today in 2011 as one of America’s Safest Companies, Gribbins Insulation was chosen to present at the conference along with other past winners, including Fluor Corporation, Caterpillar and Dow Corning.
During their presentation on Wednesday, September 12, Gribbins Insulation’s president, Jim Gribbins, vice president, Brian Willett, and safety manager, Trevor Atherton, will review the keys to their award-winning safety program and how they are able to maintain a culture of zero injuries on many different types of jobsites. Employee roles, strategic planning, total participation, and training programs will be presented, as well as the accident investigation process and motivational points system. Attendees can expect to learn methods for elimination of incidents and the importance of executive leadership and employee involvement.
Gribbins Insulation’s safety program consistently receives national recognition. In January, the National Safety Council selected Jim Gribbins as one of the 2012 CEOs Who Get It, along with the CEO of Dow Chemical. In April, the National Insulation Association honored Gribbins Insulation with the Platinum Safety Award, its highest recognition. At the end of May, Gribbins employees achieved the remarkable milestone of working two million consecutive hours without a lost time accident — this encompasses almost five years of accident-free work. As emphasized by president and founder Jim Gribbins, “There is absolutely no task that is so important that we might consider sacrificing safety, to even the slightest degree, in an effort to perform the task.”
