Since 2007, AEU has annually recognized the ALMA members with the most effective safety programs. The awards are based on calendar year and are acknowledged at various AEU events the following year including the annual ALMA Conference.
There are three factors used to determine the award winners:
AEU Safety Benchmark® for the calendar year (where applicable) – after each AEU Loss Control inspection, our loss control staff provides the member with metrics related to their management commitment, supervisor participation in the safety program,
Once all three of these factors have been calculated and ranked against other ALMA members in a category, the winners are carefully reviewed to ensure accuracy.
While there are many safety award programs managed by various industry or trade associations in maritime and other industries nationwide, we believe the criteria used in the AEU Safety Award program are the most effective in measuring not only incident prevention performance but also specific management-based controls.
