Fincantieri Marinette Marine Recognized for Safety


Published May 7, 2021 6:26 PM by The Maritime Executive

Fincantieri Marinette Marine received the top honor among larger  companies from the Wisconsin Safety Council in their annual corporate safety awards  that was announced today. 

The Wisconsin Safety Council honors businesses for exemplary safety records and  excellence in safety & health management, and this year they recognized 10 companies  for superior performance and commitment to safety.  

“It is an honor to be associated with these tremendous companies who, like us, put a  strong emphasis on operating safely,” said Jan Allman, CEO of FMM. “Safety is one of  our core values here at FMM, and it’s great to see the hardworking men and women of  our shipyard be recognized for their efforts.”  

FMM continued to lead by example in the area of safe operations. In 2020, the shipyard  continued to inculcate a collective focus on safety and wellness. This year the WSC also  considered how companies protected their workforce during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Again, FMM was able to continue critical defense shipbuilding while making  a wide range of changes to protect its employees, such as extensive disinfecting and  cleaning, free protective masks, and rigorous contact tracing. 

FMM proved to be a solid community partner during the pandemic by donating  thousands of masks to local health and public safety workers during a period in which  protective gear was in short supply. Also, FMM maintained a transparent and public  accounting of known positive cases of COVID. This was done to limit speculation and to  reassure employees, families, suppliers and community partners that robust precautions  were being taken to operate safely.
