Seafarers-contracted Crowley Maritime recently posted the following news release:
The vessels represent a combined 335 years without an LTI
(JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 12, 2012) – The Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) recently recognized Crowley Maritime Corporation’s commitment to operational safety by presenting 67 vessels with 2011 Jones F. Devlin Awards for safety during the CSA Annual Safety Awards Luncheon in New Orleans, La.
Crowley nearly doubled its number of vessels recognized from last year, and this year joined the ranks of 1,395 merchant vessels from more than 80 companies recognized by the CSA for operating at least two years without a Lost Time Incident (LTI). Crowley vessels – such as the Valdez Star, which has not had an LTI in 21 years – consistently perform above and beyond industry safety standards.
“It’s an honor to once again be recognized by the CSA for Crowley’s dedication to safety,” said Capt. Vic Goldberg, Crowley vice president of marine operations. “We strive to do no harm to people and the environment in our everyday operations, and these awards are a true testament to that, to our seagoing employees, and to our number one company core value, which is safety.”
The Chamber of Shipping of America represents 37 U.S.-based companies that own, operate or charter oceangoing tankers, container ships, and other merchant vessels engaged in both the domestic and international trades and other entities that maintain a commercial interest in the operation of such oceangoing vessels.
