AEU Safety Awards

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:

Frequency of lost time cases  a ratio of the number of lost-time cases compared to the member’s payroll for the calendar year.

Severity of lost time cases – a ratio of the total incurred losses from lost-time cases compared to the member’s payroll for the calendar year. 

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, effectiveness of the safety staff and compliance with previous AEU loss control recommendations. These metrics combine to make up the member’s overall AEU Safety Benchmark. 

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.
