Crowley Earns CSA Safety Award

Thursday, June 25, 2009

Three Crowley vessels and their crews were recently awarded 2008 Jones F. Devlin Awards at the Chamber of Shipping of America's (CSA) Annual Safety Awards Luncheon for operating more than two years without a lost time incident.
 
The Crowley articulated tug barge (ATB) Sea Reliance/550-1; ATB Sound Reliance/550-2; and the tanker Blue Ridge were recognized for their exemplary safety records. More than 160 people representing over 60 companies attended the annual event held at the Hilton Houston North Hotel.
 
"We have been holding these annual award ceremonies since the mid-1950s," said Joseph Cox, president of the CSA. "For that initial year, we honored six vessels having a total of twelve years operation with no lost-time incidents. This year, we gave awards to 1,094 vessels that operated 7,108 years without a lost-time incident. This extraordinary record is directly attributable to the professionalism of our seafarers and the dedication of shore-based company personnel to safe operation."
 
Crowley's Sea Reliance/550-1 has operated more than three years without an LTI; the Sound Reliance/550-2 has operated more than six years without an LTI; and the tanker Blue Ridge more than three years without an LTI.  

The Chamber of Shipping of America represents 33 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.
