Signal Mutual Indemnity Association has awarded Donald “Boysie” Bollinger, president and chief executive officer of Lockport, La.-based Bollinger Shipyards Inc., the 2011 Executive Leadership Safety Award.
Established in 1986 to meet the demands for stable workers’ compensation rates, Signal’s membership includes a broad range of employers throughout the nation in the stevedoring, ship construction and offshore industries. The award, which is Signal’s highest honor, was presented at the Signal Mutual Board of Directors meeting held on Jan. 20 in Vail, Colo.
Bollinger was selected from the more than 200 Signal Mutual members based upon a number of factors including safety contributions to the industry.
“This award is validation of the tireless efforts by every member of the Bollinger shipbuilding team in creating a safe working environment and a safety culture that is second to none,” said Bollinger in a company press release.
