Regulator is among only 120 of the approximately 260,000 employers throughout the state to be recognized as Carolina STAR sites. The STAR participants must meet all relevant OSHNC standards and have ongoing safety and health programs, and have illness incidence rates and lost workday case rates 50 percent below the state average for their business sector.

"I am so proud of the hard work and effort every employee made in realizing this important milestone in Regulator's history" said Joan Maxwell, president of Regulator Marine, in a statement. "The Carolina STAR recognition validates a cooperative relationship between Regulator management, our employees, and OSHA.

"The results of this effort are already paying dividends," she continued. "We have seen a dramatic decrease in our incident rates, putting us well below that of the boatbuilding industry average. We have realized a reduction in our insurance costs by demonstrating that we have a safe and healthy work environment, and that by putting safety first our employees are going home safely at the end of their shift each and every day."

Regulator Marine plans to serve as a mentor to other firms in Edenton and throughout eastern North Carolina seeking to achieve the Carolina STAR designation.
