2010 Excellence in Safety Award

For the seventh year, the Excellence in Safety Award was earned by Signal International from the Shipbuilder's Council of America. Accepting the 2010 award for Signal was Pat Killeen, Corporate Director of Environmental Health and Safety for Signal International.

The Shipbuilders Council of America is the largest and most broad-based national trade association representing the US shipyard/marine construction industry. More than 43 companies operating over 100 shipyards and marine facilities comprise its membership.

Each year the Council issues safety awards to companies whose incident rates are below the association's collective average. For the calendar year of 2010, Signal had a total OSHA recordable incident rate of 0.83, compared to the latest industry average of 7.8.
