Gladding-Hearn Shipbuilding, Duclos Corporation, was a recent recipient of the Improvement In Safety award for 2009 from the Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA). To qualify for the award, the Somerset, Mass., shipyard submitted four quarters of SCA-required employee health and safety data, documenting a required minimum 10% reduction in Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) throughout 2009.

Gladding-Hearn’s  TRIR declined almost 37% from the previous year.  According to the SCA, improvements in employee safety training have caused a steady TRIR decline among its member companies to an average of 6.27, well below the U.S. shipbuilding and repair industry average of 8.5 for 2008. Gladding-Hearn President Peter Duclos and Paul Simons, safety and compliance coordinator, accepted the award at the Council’s General Membership Meeting in April.
