The American Equity Underwriters, Inc. (AEU), the leading provider of workers’ compensation insurance for waterfront employers, announced winners of the 2020 AEU Safety Awards this week.

AEU, the program administrator for American Longshore Mutual Association (ALMA), a group self-insurance fund providing USL&H coverage under the United States Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, presents the awards each year to the best-performing ALMA members nationwide.

"During a year when the focus on safety and health was higher than ever before, these companies continued to exemplify excellence in safety leadership and practices,” said Adele Hapworth, CEO of AEU. “They deserve this recognition among their peers as the best in the industry.”
