AIA presented its 2012 Worker Safety Excellence Awards to Hi-Shear Technology, Textron and Honeywell Aerospace at the spring Board of Governors meeting held in Williamsburg, VA on May 23.
Awarded on an annual basis for the past eight years, AIA’s Worker Safety Excellence Awards recognize companies that are leading our industry in their commitment to safe and healthy working environments.
“Safety truly is job number one in our industry,” said AIA President and CEO Marion C. Blakey. “I’m delighted to honor these three exemplary companies in their continued effort and commitment to keeping their workers safe and healthy.”
Honeywell Aerospace took top honors this year, winning three awards. Honeywell repeated last year’s first placements in both the Excellence in Aircraft Engine Manufacturing and Excellence in Space and Missiles categories, and added a first place in the Excellence in Guidance and Communications Manufacturing category.
After a very close second in 2012, Textron clenched first place in this year’s Excellence in Aircraft Manufacturing category. The award for Most Improved Worker Safety Benchmarking and Excellence Program was given to Hi-Shear Technology.
Accepting awards on behalf of their companies were Textron Chairman and CEO Scott Donnelly and Honeywell Aerospace President and CEO Tim Mahoney.
