Submissions Open for IADC Safety Award 2017

The International Association of Dredging Contractors (IADC) has just announced that submissions for their annual IADC Safety Award are open.

The Award seeks to identify the exceptional safety performance of a particular project, product, ship, team or employee.

“The Award is open to all companies active in the dredging and related industry. Companies may submit multiple nominations but each submission requires that a separate registration form be completed,” IADC said in its announcement.

Registration deadline is May 31, 2017, and the IADC Board of Directors will present the Safety Award at the IADC Annual General Meeting in September, 2017 in Marseille, France.

A risky reality

Dredging operations are risky. They are large, sprawling with hidden dangers amongst heavy machinery.

The International Association of Dredging Companies and its members are committed to safeguarding their employees and to pursuing improvements in guaranteeing a safe and healthy work environment.

To further safety goals, in November 2013, a group of QHSE experts from the member companies were recruited to form the IADC Safety Committee. Through this committee, contractors are able to share safety experiences and best practices.

In a next step, the committee established the Annual IADC Safety Award.

The award encourages the development of on-the-job safety skills and rewards people and companies demonstrating diligence in safety awareness in the performance of their professions, IADC said.
