Rich Lubert joined Signal’s executive management team in mid-July. He is Senior Vice President, Safety & Member Performance, based in Wilton, Connecticut. Rich introduced himself at the AGM in August, relating that he is excited to join Signal and be part of a tremendous organization that is striving to lead safety engagement. In the weeks since the AGM, Rich has traveled through some of the ports where Members do their work, to see where he can integrate his 30-year career in safety and change management into the safety transformation underway here at Signal. He is more excited than at the start!
Rich’s resume includes an illustrious career at General Electric in various Safety, Health & Environmental areas. He has worked in a major construction company, as well as consulted across industries in complex work settings to partner with clients to envision and implement No Harm cultural change that optimizes human and organizational performance and fosters an incident free environment.
You will see Rich on the waterfront, and at Signal Safety Meetings, General and AGM weeks, as well as the Signal Maritime Conference in May. Meanwhile, you can contact Rich as follows:
Thirty-five years ago in Bermuda, a few enterprising waterfront employers came together to forge a mutual to save on the cost of their workers' compensation. Signal Mutual was formed and the savings continue today with over 250 Members. All key performance indicators are at all-time highs and are projected to grow, with the principal focus on the safety of Members' employees.
At Signal, we pride ourselves in having a close personal working relationship and partnership with all our Members. We are committed to getting to know each and every one of you. At the heart of this commitment, are the two Membership meetings held in winter and summer each year. These business meetings are carefully designed and structured to give every Member an opportunity to fully understand the complete workings of their Mutual, to follow the finances, and to get acquainted with the entire Board of Directors, management team, and fellow Members.
Signal is the number one provider of Longshore workers’ compensation in the country for a reason – the strength and quality of the Membership. Signal is not an insurance company – it is a Club, your Club.
We look forward to seeing you at the next Membership meeting.
