American Equity Underwriters 2011 Safety Awards winners announced
The American Equity Underwriters Inc.
Safety Awards were presented at the annual American Longshore Mutual Association
Conference in Grand Cayman on July 30. The awards are given each year to the best
performing ALMA members nationwide and are based on the number of accidents and
the severity of accidents for each calendar year.
The award is an acknowledgement that these companies are
leaders in the most important aspect of business operation – protecting
employees from injury or death, the association says. It’s the one effort, the
association says, that should lead all others as businesses strive for improved
results and better performance.
Three safety award winners are presented in both the marine
cargo handling and shipyard industries. Receiving marine cargo handling awards
were International Transportation Service Inc., Levin Enterprises Inc. and Schaefer
Stevedoring Inc. Shipyard safety awards were presented to Signal International
LLC, Candies Shipbuilders LLC and Signet Maritime Corp.
