G&R earned a .62 Workers Compensation Experience Modification Rating (EMR), the lowest in company history. This numerical value compares our safety record and claims history to other companies in our industry.

Let me begin by talking about our greatest strength, our people. Over the course of my career, I've had the opportunity to work with many quality, highly trained professionals. In my opinion, the staff we have assembled here at Gibbs & Register is second to none.
