Celebrating 100,000 Safe Labor Hours at Bell Helicopter Project Site in Louisiana
June 1, 2015

Our project team constructing Bell Helicopter's new aircraft assembly facility in Lafayette, Louisiana, recently celebrated achieving over 100,000 labor hours without a lost-time incident.

"We hosted an appreciation luncheon for the subcontractor workforce to recognize everyone for their outstanding safety performance," said Domingo Alba, senior safety specialist. "We also held a raffle while they enjoyed their barbecue lunch inside the structure. Several Bell Helicopter executives joined us for the festivities which made it even more rewarding for all who attended."

The project is on schedule for completion this summer. Bell Helicopter will use the facility to assemble its newest commercial helicopter, the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X.TM
