Signal Mutual Indemnity Association, a self-insured group provider of Longshore benefits, presented MSHS President Are Friesecke with the Francis R. Sharp Executive Leadership In Safety award at the association’s meeting in Park City, Utah. Friesecke was selected from more than 240 other member CEO’s in recognition for the steady and innovative improvements in safety under his leadership. 

Gunther Hoock, Signal’s Vice President of Safety Resources, read several remarks about Friesecke’s leadership from MSHS team members, including, “When Are says, ‘Our people are our most important asset.’, he means it, and he backs it up with his support, and his leadership.”
Hoock added, “I would say it this way. Are is making it personal, and taking it personal.” Signal Mutual even uses examples of MSHS processes as training guides for other Mutual Members. 
In his acceptance remarks, Friesecke was quick to give credit to his team, “Team and consistency make it work. I have trust in my people. We work hard. We work on cruise ships, cargo ships and power plants. We work coast to coast. If I did not have this trust in my people, they would not be able to perform their jobs in the field.”
