Pearl Harbor Shipyard wins US Navy award for safety

Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard has won the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Shore Safety Award for large industrial activities, the Navy has announced.  The awards recognize outstanding support and achievement in Navy safety and occupational health during fiscal year 2011.

The Shipyard has lowered its injury rate nine out of the last 10 years to where it is now 70 percent below the national average for the ship building and repair industry.  A proactive and aggressive program to encourage workers to report safety deficiencies has resulted in low-level hazards being identified and corrected more quickly, preventing injuries and work stoppages.

"This recognition is a tribute to the exceptional efforts of our workforce," said Shipyard Commander Capt. Brian Osgood, commending the nearly 4,850 civilian and military personnel at the command.

Richard Anderson, director of the Shipyard's Occupational Safety, Health and Environment Office, said, "This CNO safety award recognizes the total Shipyard effort put forth to preventing and reducing injuries, and making the Shipyard a safer workplace for our workforce.  The total Shipyard team ― management and labor ― have truly collaborated to continually strive to reduce injuries to As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA)."

Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard is a full-service naval shipyard and regional maintenance center for the U.S. Navy's surface ships and submarines.  It is the largest industrial employer in the state of Hawaii with an economic impact of $925 million.
