GBRIA is excited to announce our planned activities to recognize our members, sponsors, and award nominees at our 25th Annual Safety Excellence Awards! Our awards program will include 3 different components to bring value to all involved. The awards ceremony will be streamed online to better allow all members, sponsors, and nominees to attend. We will publish the 2021 e-magazine, which will showcase our stakeholders and include articles from industry leaders. We will conclude the awards program with an in-person (outdoor) reception at the Louisiana Capitol Museum where members, sponsors, and nominees/winners can network, receive their awards, and take pictures
The Greater Baton Rouge Industry Alliance (GBRIA) Safety Excellence Awards have been a staple in the Baton Rouge area since 1996. The awards banquet is an opportunity for GBRIA member sites to nominate those companies who’ve performed work in their facilities and committed themselves to nothing less than safety excellence in their operations. To be nominated for such an award is a great honor and a show of recognition of the great strides contractors have made to keep their workers safe and families whole.
In 1996, when the awards banquet concept was made a reality it was by the work of GBRIA’s Board of Directors, but specifically by Mr. Hal Ginn. It is because of Mr. Ginn’s vision for safe workplaces that we can come together and celebrate safety success stories. Thus, the creation of the coveted Hal Ginn Award. The finalist for this award comes from each division winner, and ultimately the company that shines the brightest takes home this award for excellence.
