Fugro Chance Receives Safety Award

Offshore survey firm Fugro Chance Inc. was recently named "Top Offshore Subcontractor" by Global Industries.

The award was given in recognition of Chance's achievement of one year without a "lost time" accident while working on Global projects.

According to Chance President Phil Stutes, the company has a stringent, in-house safety program. Training for Chance surveyors include water survival, fire fighting, CPR, first aid, coast guard training, defensive driving, and man-overboard procedures.

"Considering the work environment of the oil and gas business, we consider our safety accomplishments remarkable," Stutes said. "Along with being good business, safety standards contribute to the health and happiness of our employees."
