Gulf Stream Marine (GSM), Inc., a stevedoring company at the Port of Brownsville, received early February Signal Mutual’s Safety Leader Award in the Marine Terminals category.
The award recognizes GSM as an industry leader in anchoring safety and health as a core value with a steadfast commitment to the prevention of workplace injuries and illnesses, in addition to promoting wellness and safety off the job and in the community.
"The incredible team at GSM is very proud of this recognition and we are inspired to continue to pursue our safety journey with the same vigour and energy," said Kevin Bourbonnais, the company's president and CEO.
"Together, the GSM team makes health, wellness and safety a top priority every day. Our focus on injury and illness prevention, as well as promoting wellness and safety beyond work in our daily lives and in the communities where we operate, makes GSM a stand-out leader in the industry," added Bourbonnais.
Gulf Stream Marine is the largest non-union stevedore and marine terminal operator on the Gulf Coast, serving ocean freight carriers, freight forwarders and engineering, procurement and construction contractors in six major ports and several privately owned deep-water marine terminals.
