AEU Announces 2011 Safety Award Winners

Aug 3, 2012
Annual awards program recognizes the strongest safety programs in the maritime industry

The AEU 2011 Safety Awards were presented at the annual American Longshore Mutual Association (ALMA) Conference in Grand Cayman on July 30, 2012. The awards are given each year to the best performing ALMA members nationwide and are based on the number of accidents and the severity of accidents for each calendar year.
