The Zero Injury Institute is the creation of Bennett Ghormley, Sr. and Emmitt J. Nelson.


Bennett and Emmitt have each been devoted to the Zero Injury Concept for 25 years; Bennett as a construction company Safety Executive and Emmitt as a Safety Consultant. In 2009 they combined their energies for zero injury outcomes to form the Zero Injury Institute (ZII). ZII operates using the consulting experience, products and tools that Emmitt has created in over 25 years of zero injury focused safety consulting. With these tools coupled with Bennett’s 35 years of real time application experience in field project safety; the latter 25 years of which were devoted to zero injury outcomes they offer a combined 50 years of zero injury application experience to their clients.


The Zero Injury Institute was chartered as an LLC Corporation in Texas in 2009 with Bennett Ghormley as the owner and founder and with Emmitt Nelson as an Associate providing his created safety analysis and safety culture changing instruments and processes. Soon they were seeing many of their clients achieve the coveted one million hour milestone of Zero OSHA Recordable injuries.
