Donjon Marine recognized as leader in worker safety
Donjon Marine Co. received a 2015 American Equity Underwriters (AEU) Safety Award in Marine Contracting July 24 . The award was presented at AEU’s annual conference in Lake Oconee, Georgia.
AEU, the program administrator for American Longshore Mutual Association (ALMA), presents the awards each year to the best performing ALMA members nationwide. Eligibility for the awards is based on the frequency and severity of workers’ compensation accidents for the prior calendar year.
Awards are presented in four categories: Marine Cargo Handling, Shipyards, Offshore Industry and Marine Contracting.
“AEU feels strongly about helping our members keep their employees safe, and rewarding and recognizing those that do so,” said Mike Lapeyrouse, President and CEO of AEU. “The Safety Awards are our way of spotlighting those in the maritime industry that are going above and beyond in that effort.”
