The awards were presented at the NOIA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.   “We are truly honored to receive these distinguished awards from such a well-respected organization as NOIA.  2014 was a remarkable year in terms of our HSE performance and achieving our Goal Zero. With a series of initiatives, such as PAUSE coaching and Risk Tolerance Awareness supporting SEACOR Marine’s “Four Pillars of Safety”, we strive to continue improving our safety culture because no job is too important to sacrifice safety,” said John Gellert, President of SEACOR Marine.
