The 2017 NOIA (National Ocean Industries Association) Safety in Seas Awards competition is still open–with only two days left to submit nominations.
Nominations are due Friday, February 3.
The Culture of Safety Award honors a company (or companies) for overall organizational immersion in and commitment to safety, which has resulted in remarkable, measurable and sustained safety performance over a prolonged period of time.
The Safety Practice Award recognizes specific technologies, approaches, methods or projects with direct and demonstrable impacts on improving safety.
Compass Publications Inc., which publishes Sea Technology magazine, established the awards in 1978, to promote the safety of ocean pioneers after a 1972 submersible accident took the lives of two divers from the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution.
