GEAPS knows how much work, knowledge and skill it takes to keep employees consistently safe on the job. That is why for over 30 years GEAPS has honored companies and facilities with verifiable records of achievement.
GEAPS is pleased to announce the annual kick-off of another year of the Safety Awards Program. The 2014 Safety Awards will be presented on stage during a public ceremony at Exchange 2015 in St. Louis, Mo. The program is not only for grain storage facilities, but also for suppliers, engineers and millwrights.
Five hundred and sixty-seven facilities at 50 companies enrolled in the 2012 GEAPS Safety Awards Program. At Exchange 2013 in Louisville, Ky., the 2012 GEAPS Safety Awards program honored 461 facilities at 30 companies for successfully completing the year without any lost time due to work-related injuries or illnesses.
When companies enroll in the Safety Awards Program they are letting everyone—inside and outside the company—know how much the company values a top-notch safety program. It is also a way of honoring the people who put these programs together and kept them operational throughout the year.
To enroll your facility, fill out this application form and fax or mail it back to the GEAPS office with the appropriate enrollment fee ($95 for facilities employing a GEAPS member, $140 for non-member facilities), by Dec. 31, 2013. Recognize achievement at your facility and help GEAPS carry on the grain industry's exceptional record of safety!
Go Green: GEAPS also offers a more environmentally friendly award. This certificate-only option is a great way to save on our natural resources. To participate simply select the "Go Green" option on your enrollment form.
