Ruble, Commissioner, Indiana Department of Labor. Other key IDOL representatives were also in attendance. On hand to receive the ‘STAR’ were Jim Gribbins, President and Founder of Gribbins Insulation, and Gribbins Safety Manager, Trevor Atherton.

According to the IDOL news release, “Gribbins Insulation’s Eli Lilly Indianapolis site has an impressive clean slate for OSHA-recordable injuries and illnesses, with no recordable cases or ‘Lost Work Day’ cases for the previous four years. The national industry average Total Case Incidence Rate (TCIR) is 2.6 per 100 workers.” Gribbins received praise from IDOL Commissioner Rick J. Ruble, who enthused, “The company truly demonstrates how a culture of workplace safety and health can have a positive influence.”
