Diversity & Inclusion
A Message From GIS Leadership:
In addition to our daily operational challenges, our industry and our communities are going through a transformation as we are working to bring intolerance and inequity to a halt. Although the sociopolitical climate of 2020 has driven a great disparity in feelings and beliefs, we are unwaveringly committed to our people and developing a deeper understanding of our employee’s lived experiences through active listening in an intentionally caring workplace culture.
As we have said for the past 72 years here at GIS and still believe to be true today, our employees are our greatest asset. While we can’t begin to fully comprehend the historical and present violence, hate, and systemic racism that communities and various ethnic groups have endured – GIS leaders are committed to continuing to educate ourselves on these issues and fostering a diverse and inclusive culture in support of our company’s mission of Putting People First.
GIS LIFE Program
LIFE is the proactive, operational, and behavior-based component of GIS’s comprehensive Safety Management Program.
While our Corporate HSE group focuses on compliance, training, and incident response, the LIFE processes specifically cover Operational Safety, through: comprehensive work planning; increasing awareness of work area & task risks; intervention techniques for redirecting at-risk behaviors; embedded field presence; quarterly initiatives focused on observed areas of risk; and visible leadership engagement.
Journey to Safety Excellence
GIS measures performance success through leading indicators: audits, inspections, observations, training, and our employees’, partners’, and clients’ perception of our quality and safety performance. We utilize lagging indicators as a benchmark to see if our successes are proving effective. Through trend analysis, we adjust the training and observations, audits and inspections to move us to zero incidents.
