Our Safety Program
Gibson and its employees hold safety above all else.
At Gibson, safety is a core value that has helped create a culture where safe practices thrive. We know that being safe doesn’t just happen; it takes hard work and determination.
Gibson has adopted— and adheres to—the EMCOR Zero Injury Performance Plan, which outlines nine requirements for reducing injuries to zero.
These requirements are:
- Management commitment
- Staffing for safety
- Planning for safety
- Safety education
- Worker participation and involvement
- Recognition and reward
- Subcontractor management
- Accident and incident investigation
- Drug and alcohol testing
Safety is everyone’s responsibility.
Our goal is zero injuries. While it is easy to set a goal of zero injuries, the path to achieve it takes substantial effort.
Each employee, regardless of position, is expected to speak up for safety and make supervisors aware of any and all unsafe conditions.
Gibson has created a culture of trust, and all employees have the ability to stop work without fear of retaliation. When an employee brings up a valid safety concern, he or she is acknowledged with a positive write up called a “Stand up for Safety.”
Safety program updates
Gibson’s safety committee, composed of a diverse group of lead foremen, constantly reviews safety programs and updates practices to help create policies that are safe, easy to implement, and standardized throughout the company.
