Bollinger Shipyards recieves prestigious safety award

The Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA) has awarded the 2010 “Award for Excellence in Safety” to the Gulf Coast’s Bollinger Shipyards.   The award is given to member companies who have an end-of-year Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) that is below the average SCA rate.

Bollinger’s CEO, President and Chairman of the Board, Donald “Boysie” Bollinger said, “For the sixth year in a row, the shipbuilding/repair industry has recognized Bollinger employees for their commitment to safety. Congratulations to our dedicated employees on their efforts in making Bollinger one of the safest shipyards in America.”

Shipbuilders Council of America is the largest and most broadly-based national trade association representing the U.S. shipyard industry.  The Council represents 43 companies that own and operate over 100 shipyards, with facilities on all three U.S. coasts, the Great Lakes, the inland waterways system, Alaska and Hawaii. SCA also represents 29 affiliate members that provide goods and services to the shipyard industry.
