GEAPS Accepting Safety Award Nominees
Recognize your grain facility for staying safe
It takes a tremendous amount of effort, skill and knowledge to keep your facility and employees safe and accident-free. Recognize your facility’s hard work with the GEAPS Safety Awards Program.
The Safety Awards recognize facilities that go an entire year without a work-related lost time injury or illness. Facilities are recognized with the Elite Tier Safety Award for going the entire year without a recordable workplace injury or illness.
Each facility that successfully completes the Safety Awards Program receives a plaque commemorating the accomplishment, is recognized at the GEAPS Exchange, and is listed on the GEAPS website and in In-Grain.
The program is open to all avenues of the grain industry, including: grain storage facilities, engineers, equipment suppliers, millwrights and others.
