CRB is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Pianalto to director of environmental, health and safety (EHS), a reflection of CRB’s ongoing commitment to advance its industry-leading safety culture.

A 30-year industry veteran, Pianalto brings broad experience in implementing EHS programs for design and construction organizations in biotech, pharmaceutical and advanced technology industries.

In this role, Pianalto oversees all aspects of CRB’s EHS program. His responsibilities include EHS training and compliance reporting, injury and accident management and leading CRB’s EHS team.

“I am so excited to join the CRB team and be part of an organization that is truly committed to becoming a safety leader and doing something very special in our industry,” Pianalto said. “I look forward to working with everyone at CRB and our clients to continue to develop our culture so that all our employees go home to their families every day.”
