Maritime corporation Crowley Shipping, through the achievements of the captains and crews of 95 company owned or managed vessels, has been recognized for safe operations with Jones F. Devlin Awards by the Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA), it was announced July 28.

The Devlin Award is presented to vessels that have operated for two or more years without a work-related injury to a crew member resulting in the loss of a full turn at watch.

Through 2021, Crowley has achieved 665 cumulative years of accident-free service on its recognized vessels, ranging from two to 23 years without a loss-time injury across its fleet, the company said.

The company’s awarded vessels serve across the globe and include tugs, barges, commercial container ships, tank vessels and government-managed vessels under contract.

“Receiving the Devlin Awards exemplifies our commitment to safety and serves as a testament for the responsible and diligent work of our mariners,” said Crowley Vice President of Marine Operations Boren Chambers, who attended the ceremony on June 30 in New Orleans.

“The safety of our people, our communities and our planet is embedded in everything we do, and it is a leading factor in our operations, partnerships and strategic solutions,” he said.

Crowley says its employees completed nearly 70,000 hours of general, safety and role-specific training in 2021.
