Horizon Lines Recognized With Safety Awards

Thursday, June 26, 2008

Horizon Lines, Inc., has been recognized for outstanding achievements in ship safety by the Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) at the Annual Safety Awards.

The CSA-sponsored Ship Safety Achievement Award program recognizes outstanding feats of safety that contribute to saving a life, a ship or other property. This year, the Highest Honors award went to the Horizon

Falcon in recognition of the crew's extraordinary courage and superior seamanship, without regard to their personal safety in adverse weather conditions, when they successfully rescued Chinese crewmembers of the capsized vessel HAI TONG 7 northwest of Guam last July.

Three additional Horizon Lines vessels were presented Devlin Awards, which signify two or more years of injury-free operations. The vessels honored are the Horizon Spirit (5 years injury-free); the USNS Bruce Heezen (3 years injury-free); and the Horizon Pacific (2 years injury-free).
