AEU Announces 2023 Safety Award Winners

The American Equity Underwriters Inc. (AEU), the leading provider of workers’ compensation insurance for waterfront employers, announced the winners of the 2023 AEU Safety Awards on April 10.

AEU, the program administrator for American Longshore Mutual Association (ALMA), a group self-insurance fund providing USL&H coverage under the United States Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, presents the awards each year to the best-performing ALMA members nationwide.

“Rewarding members who are committed to keeping their teams safe is an honor,” said Jimmy Burgin, senior vice president and director of loss control. “This award represents a lot of hard work, a sincere commitment and steadfast dedication to safety.”

Eligibility for the awards is based on the frequency and severity of workers’ compensation incidents for the prior calendar year, as well as safety-related metrics determined by AEU’s loss control team.
