Safety is at the core of GREX culture. It’s incorporated into every thing we do.
Each and every GREX innovation is designed to make your track safer and keep workers out of harm’s way. The first product we ever offered was born from this approach. With DumpTrain®, a single operator can deliver aggregate at up to 2,000 tons per hour while workers are safely out of harm's way. Other material delivery products like SlotMachine®, SPS® and Solaris® follow the same blueprint for maximizing safety – minimizing the numbers on the work site, minimizing the amount of heavy equipment you need to use to get the job done, and keeping operators off the ground while unloading materials.
Innovations like our Aurora® track inspection technology and the SENSR® bridge response monitoring solution are taking safety one step further. These solutions use cutting edge technology to spot potential problems before components fail and become a serious safety concern.
In 2015, GREX was recognized as a Platinum winner in the NRC/RT&S Contractor Safety Award Contest. GREX was a Gold winner each year from 2008 to 2014. The contest involves an exhaustive outside review of company practices and recognizes only those whose efforts stand out in the industry for promoting and improving safety.
In 2016, GREX was recognized for the second year in a row by the National Safety Council with the Occupational Excellence Achievement Award. The National Safety Council recognizes organizations with injury and illness records better than or equal to 50% of the Bureau of Labor Statistics for their NAICS code and/or specific work related industry. The criteria for the award is based on cumulative data consisting of total number of consecutive months without a lost time injury, total number of consecutive work hours without a lost time injury, and total number of consecutive work hours with zero OSHA recordable cases.
