LMSR USNS POMEROY EARNS CNO NAVY AFLOAT SAFETY AWARD

JULY 7, 2011

The USNS POMEROY, operated by Ocean Shipholdings, Inc. for the Military Sealift Command and manned in all licensed positions by American Officers, was one of several vessels honored with ship safety awards at a ceremony hosted July 7 by the U.S. Navy in Washington D.C.

The large medium-speed roll-on /roll-off vessel USNS POMEROY earned the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Afloat Safety Award which recognizes outstanding contributions to fleet readiness, increased morale, efficiency and economical use of resources through safety.  “The way crew members from the POMEROY took the initiative toward safety and developed their own programs aboard these ships truly made them stand out,” said Military Sealift Command Safety Officer Kevin Kohlmann.  “These awards promote safety and motivate their crews on other MSC ships to earn the same recognition.”

The USNS POMEROY was recognized, in part, because of its implementation of “Safety Sunday,” a weekly program to enhance training and perform equipment checks.

Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus presented the awards.  Rear Adm. Mark Busby, commander of Military Sealift Commander, also participated in the ceremony.
