Safety is the number one priority during dredging operations and IADC’s Safety Award aims to promote awareness through innovation. Thirteen nominations are in the running to receive the 2017 Award.
Hard lessons at a project led to a huge shift in safety awareness, where 4000 employees learnt that each person must take responsibility, not only for themselves, but also for their colleagues.
Employees lead the way in safety awareness and in finding practical tools for use “right here and right now” resulting in greater overall on-the-job safety.
The IADC Annual Safety Award: A change in values meant a change in attitude on the work floor, where each person is willing to speak up to warn colleagues for unsafe situations.
Working in an extremely toxic and dangerous area demanded unusual, extensive safety methods that went well beyond normal ISO requirements.
This year’s IADC Safety Award winner proves that thorough training, compliance with ISO and other standards, vigilance regarding quality and health, safety and environment (QHSE) results in less on-the-job downtime, fewer accidents, healthier employees, improved performance and the delivery of quality projects.
