Florida Construction Safety Reviews
Safety at the jobsite is our top priority.
Gator Gypsum takes safety very seriously.
As fellow GMS companies, Gator Gypsum and Olympia Building Supply share a lot, including resources, relationships with the industry’s top manufacturers, and a commitment to competitive pricing. But our #1 shared priority is ensuring the safety and satisfaction of our customers and employees.
In addition to the full line of safety products we carry as part of our comprehensive product offerings, Gator & Olympia also has dedicated safety managers who work closely with our customers and their general contractors. These pros ensure all safety guidelines are met and that the proper equipment is used when we make deliveries to commercial and residential job sites across Florida.
Gator & Olympia trains and certifies all operators in-house to safely deliver materials to your jobsite. We hold weekly training sessions on safety, and even offer a safety incentive benefit program for our stockers and warehouse workers. Each one of our employees is trained to:
- Develop safe work practices

It is the practice of our company to make sure all managers and supervisors focus primarily on creating a safe work environment for employees and ensuring that they have received proper training.
