Dredging operations are risky. They are large, sprawling with hidden dangers amongst heavy machinery. The IADC members are committed to safeguarding their employees and to continuous improvement in guaranteeing a safe and healthy work environment.
To encourage this, in 2007 the IADC Board instituted a Safety Award to recognise a project with outstanding QHSE features. Going a step further, in November 2013 the IADC assembled a group of QHSE experts from the member companies: the Safety Committee was established.
