Gray Safety Program Awarded by Associated Builders and Contractors
Gray is proud to announce the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Alabama has honored the company with multiple awards in recognition of its safety program.
For the second year in a row, Gray was recognized as a Gold Award Winner for Safest in the Industry. This award category takes into consideration the safety culture at a company, including the means and methods for upholding safety and any innovation implemented by the business.
“It has been a great experience for us to watch the Gray team implement a culture of safety and not just use their recognition as a plaque,” said Jay Reed, president of Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Alabama. “Safety is not a slogan at Gray. Their entry documented page after page of safety as a way of doing business and a way to care for their customers, team members, and subs/vendors, each day.”
This was also the second consecutive year that Gray was recognized with the Diamond STEP award. STEP, Safety Training Evaluation Process, is a program implemented by ABC in 1989 to further educate companies on safety and evaluate safety environments. For this recognition, Gray’s safety program, requirements team members, as well as our OSHA incident record were evaluated. Based on the information, participants in the STEP program were awarded a level ranging from Diamond to Bronze, with Diamond being the highest.
Additionally, this was the second year that Gray was awarded the Innovation in Safety Award for our CEO Summits. This award showcases safety innovation within the company and recognizes Gray for going above and beyond when it comes to safety.
”It’s exciting to have our safety program recognized,” says Drew Romans, regional manager of Gray’s Southeast Office. “We believe that even one incident is too many and will always look for ways to advance our safety.”
At Gray, safety is deeply rooted in everything we do. It is at the heart of our mission as a company because we truly care about our people and truly want them to be safe on the job.
