The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) said in its announcement that they are accepting nominations for the IADC Safety Award 2018.
In 2013, IADC established a Safety Committee comprised of QHSE experts from its member companies to encourage the implementation of safety standards as well as enable the sharing of these practices amongst its members.
The Safety Committee is committed to reducing the number of accidents and incidents in the industry, and as a result developed a “Charter of Best Practices” and annual Safety Award.
By giving the IADC Safety Award, IADC seeks to:
- encourage the development of on-the-job safety skills and safety awareness;
- make the work environment safer;
- reward people and companies who make it possible to work more safely;
- honor those who demonstrate special diligence in safety awareness in performing their professions.
