Boston Whaler’s facility in Edgewater, Fla., received the Brunswick Safety Leadership Award. A statement noted that this is the top award given in a program conducted by Brunswick Corp.

Brunswick CEO David Foulkes presented Whaler’s safety committee with the award during a ceremony July 31. The committee said it would donate the $10,000 prize to two local charities: $5,000 to Burns Sci Tech School and $5,000 to the Edgewater Animal Shelter.

“Through a shared commitment to each other’s wellbeing, we’ve been able to uphold the highest standards,” Boston Whaler president Nick Stickler said during the ceremony. “We’re proud to receive recognition from Brunswick for our ongoing efforts toward health and safety.”

The Brunswick Safety Leadership Award is selected by Brunswick senior management among the company’s most outstanding performers. Boston Whaler was one of three facilities selected for the top honor for their safety record in 2018.

“People, along with energy, environment and products, are the four pillars of Brunswick’s sustainability efforts,” Foulkes said in the statement. “We seek to have our employees, partners, customers and the communities where Brunswick operates all enjoying happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives. Safety and wellness are key components of this effort.”

Foulkes said that 25 Brunswick facilities did not sustain any lost-time incidents in 2018.

“We congratulate Boston Whaler and its employees on their tremendous accomplishments,” Foulkes said.
