The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) today presented SEACOR Marine with the 2015 NOIA Safety in Seas (SIS) Culture of Safety Award and Safety Practice Award. This is the first time the same company has won awards in the same year. NOIA added the Culture of Safety award to the competition in 2014. SEACOR Marine won the Culture of Safety Award for their safety culture model which spurred a seven year trend of declining total number of Lost Time Incidents, Medical Treatment Incidents, and Pollution Incidents reaching Goal Zero for 2014 – that’s a Total Recordable Incident Rate of zero. The Safety Practice Award was presented to SEACOR Marine for their behavior-based safety program PAUSE, which is short for Prevent Accidents Use Safety Equipment. 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.
