“Gary has dedicated his career to helping printing companies improve their safety and environmental performance and navigate an often-confusing array of federal and state regulations,” said Melissa Ferrari, SVP, member services, SGIA. “We’re excited to have him join SGIA’s Government & Business Information department and expand the support and services we offer not only our members but also the entire printing industry.”
As a primary resource for printers and printing industry suppliers investigating EHS issues, Jones will represent the printing industry to federal, state and local agencies and provide technical support on EHS compliance requirements and sustainability programs directly to SGIA member companies.
In addition to serving as a resource for SGIA members, Jones will continue to provide support on EHS compliance and other matters to members of the Printing Industries of America through its national network of affiliates.
“EHS issues are critical to the economic health of a company and the well-being of its employees. At SGIA, I will be able to provide EHS support to more segments of the printing industry and work to ensure that the regulations do not impose hardships and unnecessary costs,” Jones said.
“SGIA will be able to enhance its monitoring and responses to proposed changes to state or local regulations impacting screen, digital and now commercial print operations,” Ferrari added.
