Gribbins Insulation was honored by the Metro Indianapolis Coalition for Construction Safety Inc. (MICCS) with the 2013 Excellence in Safety Award, better known in industry circles as the coveted “Crystal Eagle.” Gribbins Safety Manager Trevor Atherton accepted the award at the 20th annual MICCS Awards Banquet on May 2, 2013, at the Indiana Convention Center Sagamore Ballroom in downtown Indianapolis.
Indiana construction companies of all sizes submit applications for the prestigious MICCS awards program, which then compete in categories with their peers. Each category winner is recognized as a Safety Leader and is then in contention for the “Crystal Eagle.” Gribbins Insulation, a MICCS-IDOL Certified Partner and the Safety Leader winner in the “Trade Partner Over 300,000 Hours” category, was chosen from the five Safety Leader winners for MICCS’s highest honor. As one judge stated, Gribbins Insulation won the Crystal Eagle because “they are taking behavioral safety to another level.”
Gribbins Insulation president and founder Jim Gribbins stated, “As an Indiana contractor for almost 30 years, we appreciate MICCS recognition of our program as a state leader. Our employees place safety in front of all actions, and this award honors each individual’s commitment.”
Gribbins Insulation consistently receives national recognition for its safety program. Other 2013 safety awards include the Indiana Governor’s Workplace Safety Award for Safety Innovation and the Platinum Safety Award from the National Insulation Association, the highest honor from the national trade association for mechanical insulation. In 2011, Gribbins Insulation was honored as one of America’s Safest Companies by EHS Today, and in 2012, the National Safety Council selected Jim Gribbins, president and founder, as one of eight CEO’s Who Get It.
