Bollinger Shipyards, Inc. achieves safety milestones

bollingerlogoBollinger Shipyards, Inc. continues to achieve safety milestones, changing the culture of shipyard safety awareness at its U.S. based facilities.

In the last quarter, Bollinger facilities at Algiers and Lockport New Construction both surpassed one year without a lost time accident (LTA).  Of the many program achievements this year, the Bollinger Fourchon facility reached 10 years without a LTA, and the Bollinger Marine Fabricators' facility reached an impressive 2,750,000 man-hours worked without a LTA. 

Bollinger says that achieving these significant accomplishments reinforces its commitment to provide world-class performance levels in all aspects of compliance at its twelve shipyard facilities. 

On April 5, 2011, Bollinger was presented the 2010 "Award for Excellence in Safety" by the Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA). The Award for Excellence in Safety is given to member companies who have an end-of year Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) below the average SCA rate.  This was the sixth year in a row that Bollinger facilities received this award.  On the award, Bollinger's Executive Vice President of New Construction, Chris Bollinger said, "Congratulations to our dedicated employees on their efforts in making Bollinger one of the safest shipyards in America."

"Bollinger is committed to safety of its workforce, support for our community, and respect for the environment," said Ben Bordelon, Executive Vice President of Repair during a recent managers' meeting.   Bollinger credits the success of its safety program to its employees, contractors, as well as its diverse customer base, a robust inspection program, a focus on continuous improvement, and training. 

The Bollinger safety program is targeted to continue to raise the bar on health, safety, and environmental compliance and provide a safe work environment for employees, contractors and customers.
