GEAPS Opens Enrollment For 2020 Safety Awards Program

Each year, the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) recognizes grain industry companies that have outstanding safety records.

The association is accepting enrollments for the 2020 Safety Awards Program, which will be presented during GEAPS Exchange 2021 in Columbus, OH.

The awards will honor companies and facilities without and verifiable lost-time accidents during 2020.
