Safety Manager to present at Indiana’s Largest Safety Conference

Trevor.Gribbins5x7.LoResWebOn Wednesday, March 23, 2016, Trevor Atherton, CSP, CHST, CRIS, will present at the 2016 Indiana Safety and Health Conference and Expo at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis.  Backed by the Central Indiana Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers and in partnership with INSafe/Indiana Department of Labor, the event is one of the largest safety conferences in the Midwest.  To register, visit the official conference website: http://www.insafetyconf.com/

As the Safety Manager at Gribbins Insulation, the subject of Trevor’s Wednesday morning presentation will be “Behavior-Based Safety in Construction” including:

  • Focus on a peer-to-peer behavior-based safety process
  • Review the development phase of Gribbins Insulation’s behavior-based safety process to today
  • How employees conduct observations and how the data gathered are relayed back to employees

See page 8 of the conference agenda.

Gribbins Insulation’s behavior-based safety process is known internally as “SAFE” – Surveying At-Risk for Elimination.  Accredited by the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies, this peer-to-peer behavior based safety observation program provides our safety department and management with insight into what employees are really seeing on the jobsites.  Employees are trained how to complete the observations and earn safety incentive points for participation.  The safety department documents and tracks all surveys, providing feedback to our field employees and management through monthly safety bulletins and the BBS Committee meeting, comprised of safety representatives and field personnel.

The SAFE program is just one part of Gribbins Insulation’s overall commitment to safety as a company value.  With our dedicated safety manager and three safety coordinators, our safety program is one of the best in our industry.  In addition to our many safety awards, our performance speaks volumes:

  • EMR of 0.60 as of May 1, 2016
  • EMR below .77 for over 15 years
  • Zero Recordables in 2013
  • Recordable Case Frequency Rate below 3.0 since 2002
