Giving Marin Founding Partner Ghilotti Bros. Inc. reached 1 million hours without a lost time accident!
Reaching this milestone within the company over the past two years is a testament to the commitment of hard-working, safety minded employees to keep everyone on the job safe. The company strives to engage all levels of the company in this philosophy and continually makes every effort to improve performance. The high standards required in the Safety Program are achieved through training, daily morning huddles, weekly site safety assessments, weekly tailgate trainings, quarterly safety barbecues, quarterly safety committee meetings, employee safety recognition, early return-to-work program, alcohol and drug testing program, and full-time safety management oversight to ensure employee commitment.
Ghilotti Bros. Inc.’s goal is to provide a safe workplace to ensure that every employee and subcontractor returns home safely to their families at the end of the day.
“I am so proud of all of our employees for accomplishing this incredible safety milestone. It wasn’t very long ago that we were setting yearly goals to allow for a maximum number of lost time accidents and then we finally realized that all accidents are truly preventable. At the end of the day, we achieved this goal with hard work and dedication to changing our Safety Culture on how we think, act, and talk about safety that made the difference.” stated Ghilotti Bros. Inc. President Mike Ghilotti.
