Hatteras Yachts Honoured for Safety Record


New Bern, North Carolina-based Hatteras/CABO Yachts was honoured by the North Carolina Department of Labor (NCDOL) in a ceremony held in mid June, in Kinston. M&P Yacht Centre in Vancouver, BC is a dealer for the luxury yacht brand.

Commissioner of Labor Cherie Berry presented Hatteras with two certificates recognizing the New Bern, N.C., manufacturer’s outstanding safety record. The first was the Certificate of Special Recognition of Hatteras/CABO Yachts for One Million Employee Hours with no injuries that resulted in lost workdays from June 16, 2015 through August 2, 2016. The second was the Certificate of Safety Achievement, Second Consecutive Year Gold, in recognition of the outstanding safety and health efforts of Hatteras/CABO Yachts that resulted in substantial reduction of injuries and illnesses and the promotion of safer working conditions in 2016.

Also recognized at the ceremony was Hatteras Yachts Group Leader, Tommy Ormond, who has been employed by the builder for 45 years, nine months without a lost-time accident.

“Safety in the workplace is our primary goal as we build high-quality luxury yachts here in New Bern,” says Hatteras/CABO Yachts CEO Kelly Grindle. “I am proud of our workers for maintaining such an outstanding safety and health record, and I congratulate Tommy Ormond for his exceptional safety record as well.”
