Hatteras and Cabo Yachts was honored by the North Carolina Department of Labor in a ceremony held on June 13 in Kinston, N.C.

Commissioner of Labor Cherie Berry presented Hatteras with two certificates recognizing the New Bern, N.C., manufacturer’s outstanding safety record.

“Safety in the workplace is our primary goal as we build high-quality luxury yachts here in New Bern,” Hatteras and Cabo Yachts CEO Kelly Grindle said in a statement. “I am proud of our workers for maintaining such an outstanding safety and health record, and I congratulate Tommy Ormond for his exceptional safety record as well.”

The first was a certificate of special recognition of Hatteras and Cabo Yachts for One Million Employee Hours with no injuries that resulted in lost workdays from June 16, 2015 through Aug. 2.

The second was the Certificate of Safety Achievement, Second Consecutive Year Gold, in recognition of the safety and health efforts of Hatteras and Cabo Yachts that resulted in reduction of injuries and illnesses and the promotion of safer working conditions in 2016.

Also recognized at the ceremony was Hatteras Yachts group leader Tommy Ormond, who has been employed by the builder for 45 years, 9 months without a lost-time accident.
