EHS Today, the Magazine for Environment, Health and Safety Leaders, has awarded GF Piping Systems in the Americas as one of “America’s Safest Companies 2020.” The award was announced in conjunction with EHS Today’s Safety Leadership Conference 2020, held virtually on November 10-13. America’s Safest Companies was founded in 2002 by EHS Today, and to date more than 250 companies have been recognized with this annual award.
To be considered as one of America’s Safest Companies, organizations must demonstrate evidence of excellence in a variety of areas. At the top of the list for examples sited in the application for this award was GF’s proactive COVID-19 plan, which went over and above local government guidelines. Other examples included the implementation of Safety at Work Standards, lean manufacturing, Six Sigma, and its 2015 corporate-wide Zero Risk Campaign that by the end of 2019 contributed to a 30 percent reduction in accidents since its 2013-2015 baseline.
