Huntington Ingalls Industries' AMSEC subsidiary employee, Casey Tarnowski, wins annual safety suggestion award.

The annual Safety Suggestion Award contest is hosted by the Virginia Ship Repair Association (VSRA).

Casey Tarnowski was honored for his stanchion stabilizer, which prevents stanchions from rolling off flight decks and preventing them from being dropped through flight deck stanchion holes on aircraft carriers. He received the award and a $500 cash prize from Brian Applewhite, VSRA's safety committee chair, at the VSRA's recent general membership meeting.

"We are very proud of Casey for his innovative and creative safety initiative," said Harris Leonard, HII vice president and president of AMSEC operations. "Safety is one of our top priorities at AMSEC, and Casey personifies the spirit by thinking out of the box and keeping our customer and employees safe on the waterfront."
