Brunswick honors its top facilities


Three Brunswick facilities have received the Chairman's Safety Award, the company's highest honor, and 21 additional facilities were recognized with Distinguished Awards for their 2010 safety performance.

The Chairman's Safety Award is selected and presented by Brunswick senior management to the most outstanding performers. Three facilities have won this award:

  • Edgewater, Fla., Brunswick Commercial and Government Products
  • Taycheedah, Wis., Mercury Marine Racing
  • Palm Coast, Fla., Brunswick Recreational Boats

As Chairman's Safety Award recipients, each of the facilities will receive a $10,000 grant from Brunswick, which will be donated to a local charity chosen by the plant. Additionally, the Palm Coast facility achieved 6 million hours worked without a lost-time incident in December 2010 and the Taycheedah facility achieved 1 million hours without a lost-time incident in January 2010.

The Distinguished Safety Award is achieved by meeting specific safety performance results, which include incident rates and other Brunswick criteria.

"At Brunswick, we believe it is everyone's responsibility to contribute to safety in the workplace. I'm very pleased with our employees' commitment to our high safety standards and congratulate these facilities and their employees on their tremendous accomplishments," Brunswick chairman and CEO Dustan McCoy said in a statement.
