The Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) recognized the Foss family of companies for their commitment to safety by granting Jones F. Devlin Awards to 81 of their tugs and manned barges.
 


Eight-one Foss vessels were recognized at the CSA's Annual Safety Awards Luncheon held in New Orleans, Louisiana on May 23, 2013. Altogether, the Foss vessels achieved the equivalent of 463 years without a lost-time injury.
 


Three levels of achievement are recognized by CSA: A basic two-year award; a three-year award; and a four-year award. Of Foss' 81-awarded vessels, 47 received a special award that is given annually to ships with five or more years of accident-free operation.


 
The Jones F. Devlin Safety Awards are given to self-propelled merchant vessels that have operated for two full years or more without a crewmember losing a full turn at watch because of an occupational injury. The award publicly recognizes the skills and dedication of the men and women who are responsible for those safe vessel operations for 55 years.


 
"This year, we gave awards to 1,438 vessels that operated 8,394 years without a lost-time incident," said Joseph J. Cox, CSA President. "This extraordinary record is directly attributable to the professionalism of our seafarers and the dedication of shore-based company personnel to safe operation."
