The Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA) announced that for the fourth consecutive year in a row (2014-2017), Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding received SCA’s prestigious Excellence in Safety Award.
Through their proactive approaches and dedication to improved safety and health of their employees, Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding is one of 19 SCA member companies to receive awards for their continued advancement of employee safety in the shipyard industry.
SCA member companies are eligible for the Excellence in Safety Award if the yard submits the SCA Injury & Illness survey for all four quarters, have zero fatalities throughout the year and have a recordable incident rate (TRIR) rate below the 2017 SCA aggregate of 3.87 percent.
The awards were presented during the SCA annual meeting in Washington, D.C. on May 17, 2018. The event saw the attendance of nearly 100 participants to discuss the status of the U.S. shipbuilding and repair industry and to bring awareness to the U.S. Congress of the industry’s critical role in national and economic security.
