VIDEO: WEDA Award for Onondaga Cleanup Project
The Western Dredging Association (WEDA) has presented the 2014 Annual Safety Award to Onondaga Lake Remediation Project (Honeywell, de Maximis, Parsons, Sevenson, Infrastructure Alternatives, O’Brien & Gere, and Anchor QEA).
The Onondaga Lake Capping, Dredging, and Habitat Restoration project consists of several remedial activities occurring simultaneously, and involves seven project team member companies.
Despite the large and varied nature of the workforce, a culture of safety has been promoted throughout the entire project.
In the first two years, a program-wide commitment to safety has resulted in an enviable safety record with no fatalities, and only one lost time incident reported.
