The safety of our employees is of the utmost importance to Glass Solutions, Inc.

 
 

Lead by our Safety Director, Kevin Hill, GSI manages a “Zero Accident” philosophy as expected by our construction partners and upholds the highest PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) standards. We have site safety plans that illustrates project specifics for our glaziers and contractors.

It is important that we not only invest in today, but into the future as well. Each month, a foreman meeting is held at GSI's headquarters with a focus on safety. In addition to safety, the group also discusses all things going on in the field- improving communication between operations, field and shop.

As a company, we regularly participate and are proficient in providing appropriate documentation for projects resulting in Platinum, Gold and Silver LEED Certifications.
