CSA Recognizes Safety in Shipping Industry

Monday, June 13, 2011

The U.S. maritime industry publicly recognized the women and men responsible for safe ship operations at the Annual Safety Awards Luncheon held at the Loews New Orleans Hotel on June 2, 2011. Over 180 people, representing over 70 companies, attended the annual industry-sponsored event. The Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) announced the results of the 2010 Jones F. Devlin Awards. Those awards were given to vessels that have operated for at least two years without a seafarer involved in a lost-time injury.

Joseph Cox, CSA President said: ‘We have been holding these annual award ceremonies since 1958. This was the Fifty-third Anniversary of the program. For that initial year, we honored six vessels. This year, we gave awards to 1,288 vessels for operating more than 2 years without a lost-time incident. This extraordinary record is directly attributable to the professionalism of our seafarers and the dedication of shore-based company personnel to safe operation.’

IAS affiliated ships that have achieved the Devlin Award include:
