Brunswick Corp. honored three manufacturing facilities as part of its safety award program.

Mercury Marine in St. Cloud, Fla., Mercury Marine Regional Distribution Center in Dandenong, Australia, and Whale Parts and Accessories in Bangor, Northern Ireland, earned the Chairman’s Safety Award.

All Brunswick manufacturing, engineering and distribution facilities worldwide are eligible for the honor.

In 2015 three facilities won the Chairman's Safety Award, the company's highest honor in the category, and each will direct a $10,000 donation to a local charity of its choice.

Meanwhile, 24 additional facilities were recognized with Distinguished Safety Awards for their 2015 performance.

Brunswick cited 37 facilities for achieving no lost-time incidents during 2015, although all did not qualify for either the Chairman's Safety or Distinguished Safety awards, which include additional criteria.

"Safety is everyone's responsibility and concern at Brunswick,” Brunswick CEO Mark Schwabero said in a statement. “Each day we strive to ensure the safety of our employees and the communities in which they live and work. Our congratulations to these facilities and their employees on their tremendous accomplishments.”
