Lycoming Engines was awarded the National Safety Council’s Occupational Excellence Achievement Award at the NSCs 2008 Congress and Expo in Anaheim, Calif. in September.
At the presentation, the NSC said the award recognizes companies with outstanding safety records compared to similar organizations, based on U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics ratings. Lycoming’s safety achievements include passing the one million hr mark without a lost time accident twice in the past three years.
Ian Walsh, Lycoming’s senior vice president and general manager, said "We thank and congratulate all of our employees for their leadership and commitment to a safe work environment, safe work practices, and building a culture of prevention. Everyone at Lycoming is proud of this accomplishment."
Lycoming was also named one of America’s Safest Companies by the NSC’s Occupational Hazards magazine.
Lycoming, a Textron Company, manufactures piston engines for helicopters built by Enstrom, Robinson and Schweizer.
