“Roy Gillingham and his sons, Douglas and Robby, followed the basics: using the Metal Supermarkets’ Safety Program as a guide and staying adamant about compliance with state and federal safety laws. Even more importantly, they go over and above to put a major emphasis on safety in 2012, holding regular safety meetings with all employees, and making a real commitment to ensure they were operating in a safe environment,” said Stephen Schober, Metal Supermarkets’ President & CEO.

Gillingham received the award at the Metal Supermarkets Annual Conference held in New Orleans, LA. This was the second year that the Safety Award was presented, and the first year that the Fort Worth branch won.
