Signal International announced that on December 31, 2014, the Signal Ship Repair Operations located in Mobile, Alabama achieved one full year and worked 387,926 manhours, without the occurrence of an OSHA recordable incident.

This is a  safety milestone within the United States shipyard and marine fabrication industry, thus representing world-class safety performance, the yard said.


By realizing the goal of a zero OSHA recordable incident, which includes work-related injuries such as cuts, lacerations, punctures, abrasions, fractures, strains, sprains, dislocations, burns, bruises and contusions, Signal Ship Repair has set the standard and demonstrated that working completely OSHA recordable free within the industry is achievable. This success is attributed to the efforts and focus of the entire Signal Ship Repair Operations employees – management, administration, support, and production.


Additional to note is Signal’s OSHA recordable safety goal for 2015 is “0” incidents across all company divisions. This “0” incident goal reflects Signal’s core value that Signal’s top priority is our employees safety. With our strong safety management processes, full work force support and outstanding execution, Signal has created a safety culture throughout the organization that now allows us to perform incident free.
