APRIL 29, 2015 — Bollinger Shipyards was presented with two safety awards at this month's Spring General Membership Meeting of the Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA).
The company was awarded the 2014 "Award for Excellence in Safety" for the tenth consecutive year, and was also presented the 2014 "Award for Improvement in Safety."
The Award for Excellence in Safety is given to member companies with the lowest total recordable incident rates (TRIR) based on a quarterly injury and illness survey conducted by the SCA. The Award for Improvement in Safety is presented to member companies with a 10% or more reduction of their TRIR from the previous year.
"For the past decade, Bollinger Shipyards and its employees have been committed to be one of the Safest Shipyards in America," said Bollinger's President and CEO, Ben Bordelon, on accepting the awards. "Our company is proud of its accomplishments and looks forward to the future as we continue our mission of exceptional achievements in worker safety. These awards would not be possible without the hard working men and women of Bollinger who have made safety a priority in all of our facilities."
