TRANSOCEAN Ltd. has given its executives pay raises, bonuses and stock options after the company's "best year" for safety, despite a deadly oil
platform explosion and massive leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
"Notwithstanding the tragic loss of life in the Gulf of Mexico, we achieved an exemplary statistical safety record as measured by our total
recordable incident rate and total potential severity rate," Transocean said in a filing Friday to the US Securities and Exchange Commission
"As measured by these standards, we recorded the best year in safety performance in our company's history, which is a reflection on our commitment
to achieving an incident-free environment, all the time, everywhere."
Nine of the 11 people killed in the April 20, 2010, explosion on the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon platform were Transocean employees. Seventeen other
people were wounded.
I really do not know what to say.
Best safety performance? Did I dream what happened last year?
Bonuses and rewards? While the livelihoods of countless families are in ruins as a result of their 'best safety perfomance'.
People died in that explosion and the greedy CEO's and the like all get a fat reward.
It is unbelievable
