Fincantieri Marinette Marine was honored for its exemplary safety record by the Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA), at a ceremony during the council’s annual meeting in Washington D.C. May 16, 2019.
Fincantieri Marinette Marine’s president and CEO Jan Allman was presented with the 2018 SCA Excellence in Safety Award, as well as the SCA’s Improvement in Safety Award.
Nineteen other member shipyards received additional awards in various categories this year.
Fincantieri Marinette Marine is part of the Fincantieri Marine Group, which oversees three interconnected Wisconsin shipyards in the Great Lakes.
“Safety is one of our key values,” said Allman. “Safety is important in every aspect of what we do, and we continue to improve on an already exemplary safety record. These awards are something each member of our team should be proud of.”
Companies like Fincantieri Marinette Marine are “leaders in their commitment to protecting the health and safety of their workers,” said SCA President Matthew Paxton. “The men and women of our industry are devoted to building, repairing, designing, and maintaining top notch military and commercial vessels to ensure a robust domestic shipyard industrial base and the legacy of superior shipbuilding.
