Safety, Health, & Security

GBRIA has a long history of helping plants and contractors improve safety performance. Our goal is to ensure that each person goes home the same way or better than how they came to work that day. We have several programs that support improving safety performance.

Safety, Health & Security Committee:

The SHS Committee meets monthly, typically on the second Tuesday of each month from 8 a.m. - 10 a.m., at the GBRIA office and is led by GBRIA Board of Directors' members.  Participants on the committee are usually safety management representatives from member sites.  The committee covers many topics, has developed best practice guidelines and continues to seek improvements in safety. Please contact Brandon Smith, Manager of Safety, Health & Security of GBRIA, if you would like to join the committee.

The SHS Committee conducts a quarterly survey of Incidents and Illnesses. This data is used to focus improvement efforts and to schedule speakers for the quarterly technology exchanges. In 2016, GBRIA members and contractors combined achieved a 0.6 OSHA recordable rate, a remarkable achievement!

The 2017 Contractor Safety Excellence Awards Banquet will be held on March 30, 2017 at the L'Auberge Resort at 5 p.m. (cocktails) and 6 p.m. (dinner).

Quarterly SHS Networking & Technology Exchange Meetings

In addition to the committee meetings, a quarterly SHS Technology Exchange meeting is held from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. with lunch served.
