Setting the Gold Standard for Safety.

While we pride ourselves on executing great projects that give our customers a winning advantage, there’s nothing we’re prouder of than sending everybody home safely at the end of each day. We’re so invested in this principle that we’ve made it our #1 core value: We put safety and quality of life first.


Our commitment to the goal of zero incidents is evidenced by our frequency and severity rates, which are consistently below national averages. To achieve this goal, we follow through on the expectation that everybody owns safety on and off the jobsite, not just supervisors and managers.


Our dedication to safety goes beyond Gray’s own team members. We care equally as much for every worker, customer representative, and trade partner involved on a Gray project. Everybody on a Gray project commits to and practices the same safety program. With common communication and accountability, we empower our people to voice concerns and stop when they observe unsafe conditions.
