SCA Announces 2012 Safety Awards

SCA's 2012 Safety Awards were announced at the Shipbuilders Council of America April 10-12 General Membership Meeting held in Washington, D.C. More than 90 representatives from the shipyard industrial base from across the country were in attendance.  SCA's safety awards enhance operations and improve safety through recognition and promotion of accident prevention.  Through their proactive approaches and dedication to improved safety and health of their employees, these member companies demonstrate their leadership. 

SCA conducts quarterly Injury and Illness Surveys.  Bilnded data is aggregated to display a representative picture of the industry.  That picture, over the past 10 years, displays a steady decline in recordable incident rates. In 2011, SCA's total recordable incident rate (TRIR) was 5.16, well below the industry at-large rate of 7.8.  For more information on SCA's metrics, Safety Committee, or compliance assistance and training products, please contact (email hidden; JavaScript is required)
