LOCKPORT, Louisiana -- Bollinger Shipyards has been presented with the Award For Excellence In Safety by the Shipyard Council of America (SCA). The award was presented during the association's general membership meeting held in Washington, D.C.
The award is given to member companies who have an end-of-year total recordable incident rate (TRIR) that is below the total SCA rate. In 2007, SCA members set their lowest rate ever with a TRIR of 5.86. Bollinger's rate for 2007 was 3.20.
"This is the result of Bollinger employees staying focused on safety and watching out for each other, and again their efforts have been noticed by the shipbuilding/repair industry," says Donald "Boysie" Bollinger, Bollinger Shipyards' chairman and CEO. "Thanks to our dedicated employees, Bollinger Shipyards remains one of the Safest Shipyards in America."
