Brunswick recognizes facilities for safety achievements

Brunswick Corporation announced the recipients of its top safety awards for 2018. All of the company’s manufacturing, engineering and distribution facilities worldwide are eligible for the honors. Three locations received the Brunswick Safety Leadership Award, including directing a $10,000 donation to a local charity of its choice.

The three facilities that have won the leadership award were Boston Whaler in Edgewater, Fla., Land N’ Sea/Mercury Marine Plant 73 Regional Distribution Center in Atlanta and Mercury Marine Plant 12 Engineering in Fond du Lac, Wis.

The company is recognizing seven facilities with the Brunswick Award for Sustained Safety performance. Each of them will give a $2,500 donation to a local charity. Another 14 Brunswick operations earned Distinguished Safety Awards for 2018 and a total of 25 facilities did not sustain any lost-time incidents for the year.

“People, along with energy, environment and projects are the four pillars of Brunswick’s sustainability efforts,” David Foulkes, Brunswick CEO, said in a 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.”
