APS received the First Place Oregon Area Safety Award Group C Stevedore and a Coast Accident Prevention Award for a (One-Year) Zero Injury Rate went to APS Stevedoring, Oregon, Pacific Northwest Area.
Winners are determined by companies attaining the lowest incident rate within their category.
“This is a great accomplishment for a start-up company and says much about APS’ dedication to safety,” said John Hering, APS President. “I cannot say enough about Site Manager Ben Thamert and the great job he and the entire APS team has done."
The categories are stevedoring companies, container companies, terminal companies, bulk operators and lines companies.
PMA safety awards rules are established by the awards committee composed of members from all areas on the West Coast.
APS Stevedoring LLC is an auto and general cargo and breakbulk stevedoring company headquartered in Long Beach, California.
