Recognize Your 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!

What is the program?

The Safety Awards recognize facilities that go an entire year without a work-related lost time injury or illness. Starting in 2017, facilities will also be recognized with a new Elite Tier Safety Award for going the entire year without a recordable workplace injury or illness.

What do I get?

Each facility that successfully completes the Safety Awards Program receives a plaque commemorating the accomplishment, is recognized at the GEAPS Celebration at the Exchange, and is listed on the GEAPS website and in In-Grain.

Who can participate?

The  program is open to all avenues of the grain industry, including: grain storage facilities, engineers, equipment suppliers, millwrights and others.

2016 Safety Awards Announced at Exchange 2017
