Our ship has been awarded an award from the Chamber of Shipping of America.
The Jones F. Devlin Award.
The award can be presented to a vessel that has had a stretch of minimum two years without an LTI (Lost Time Incident).
It feels good once in a while to get a formal recognition of the job that everyone carries out on a daily basis.
The funny thing is that we didn't know that our company participated in the program, so we were pleasantly surprised when the certificate showed up in the ship's mail.
Everyone in our organization is very serious about safety, So even the smallest incidents and near misses are reported and analyzed, in order to make future operations even more safe for all employees.
People are encouraged to write an observation card if they spot either something that could be improved upon, or something that should be commended.
I hope that all of you have an equally safe job environment wherever you work.
