Boston Whaler employees logged two million hours without a lost-time incident. As of February 20, the accident-free streak represents about 12 months of work.

“I would like to congratulate and thank everyone who made this achievement possible,” Nick Stickler, president of Boston Whaler, said in a statement. “Boston Whaler is committed to the well-being of our employees — safety is more than just a priority, it’s a part of our culture. It’s a commitment to each other that we renew every single day.”


At Boston Whaler, new employees go through many hours of training to learn safety procedures and protocols as part of the company’s Touchpoint Program. Team leaders are trained in OSHA regulations and a cross-departmental safety committee is trained in first aid, CPR and other procedures.

To celebrate the milestone, the company held a cookout on April 2.
