SHAMROCK RECEIVES 2016 AEU OFFSHORE SAFETY AWARD


Shamrock Energy Solutions is excited to announce that they have been named the recipient of the 2016 AEU Offshore Safety Award!

The American Equity Underwriters, Inc. (AEU) presents the award each year to the American Longshore Mutual Association (ALMA) member with the most effective safety program in their category. Award winners are separated into four categories: Marine Cargo Handling, Shipyards, Offshore Industry, and Marine Contracting. Shamrock’s top-notch safety program outperformed thirty other companies in the Offshore Category. Additionally, AEU was so impressed with the organization’s safety performance, that Shamrock’s HSE Director was asked to speak on the topic of “Celebrating Milestones and Successes in Safety” at the AEU Safety and Claims Forum in Houston this past May.

AEU is the program administrator of ALMA, a group mutual association providing insurance coverage under the United States Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. Over 1,000 companies across the nation are members of ALMA, and the AEU Safety Award has become a competitive and coveted industry-wide accolade. Due to the large number of members in ALMA throughout the maritime industry, the AEU Safety Award program is a true representation of all industries covered by the Longshore Act. "To receive an AEU Safety Award is an acknowledgement that your company is a leader in the most important aspect of business operations - protecting employees from injury," says Jimmy Burgin, Senior Vice President and Director of Loss Control at AEU. "Shamrock Energy Solutions truly earned this award and they deserve to be recognized among their peers." 

“This award is further testament to the strong and proficient safety culture that our team has earned a reputation for maintaining over the years,” says Shamrock Chief Operating Officer, Daryl Rousse. In addition to the AEU Offshore Safety Award, Shamrock has achieved several other safety milestones and triumphs, including:

“We would like to sincerely thank our HSE team for providing Shamrock with the vision and tools to continuously improve our safety performance. We would also like to express our deep gratitude to each and every Shamrock employee for their never-ending commitment to safety, Shamrock and each other,” states Shamrock President and CEO, Jeff Trahan. “Given our industry’s current challenges, I am certain that companies without a comparable safety record are not experiencing the stabilities and opportunities that we are fortunate to have here at Shamrock Energy Solutions.”
