Shipbuilders Council presents safety awards in 2024

10 July 2024

The Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA) announced that 18 of its member shipyards are receiving awards for their performance in safety during the 2023 calendar year

“Safety is not only a priority; it is a cornerstone of our industrial base. These awards not only recognize excellence in safety practices, but also demonstrate our industry’s commitment to ensuring that every worker comes home safe every day. Our continued focus on security not only protects our most valuable asset – our people – but also strengthens the foundation of our nation’s maritime capabilities,” said Matthew Paxton, president of the Shipbuilders Council of America.

“Each year, SCA recognizes member facilities that exceed expectations in maintaining the highest safety standards and improving safety protocols in their organizations. This year’s winners exemplify outstanding safety performance.”

SCA presents its annual “Award for Excellence in Safety” and “Award for Improvement in Safety” to recognize shipyard and repair organizations for their improvement of operations and promotion of safety and accident prevention. The “Award for Significance in Safety Achievement” honors shipyards that saw zero fatalities and had a total recordable incident rate (TRIR) of less than 1.0.

“This year’s awards highlight the relentless efforts of our member facilities to foster a culture of safety. By prioritizing health and safety, these shipyards not only protect employees but also improve operational efficiency and resilience,” said Brad Moyer, vice president of business development and strategic planning for BAE Systems ship repair, and Chairman of the Shipbuilders Council of America. “The impressive safety records of this year’s awardees reflect a commitment to continuous improvement and serve as an inspiration to other industries.”
