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!


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.

Contractor Safety & Health Evaluations/Audits

GBRIA has provided contractor audits that plants share since 1996. Let us help you streamline and lower your cost of doing audits.

Contractor Safety Training 

The Alliance Safety Council delivers safety training for GBRIA members to prepare contract workers to enter industrial sites and is accepted by all plants in the Greater Baton Rouge area as well as many other plants in the nation.

Site Specific Orientations

The Safety Council also develops Site-Specific orientation courses for GBRIA members at no charge. See which plants conduct theirs through the Safety Council.

Criminal Background Screens

The Security Passport program offers a portable screen and is accepted by most plants in the Greater Baton Rouge area.
