The 2016 NOIA Safety in Seas Awards competition is underway.  NOIA member companies are encouraged to enter and participate in honoring the offshore energy industry's commitment to safety. 

Since 1978, the National Ocean Industries Association has held the Safety in Seas (SIS) Awards competition to recognize excellence among those who, by their actions, design or influence, have contributed to improving the safety of life in the offshore energy industry.  NOIA confers two distinct safety awards annually.  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. 

An independent selection committee, including representatives from the National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement and an independent Industry consultant will select the nominee from each award category that has made the most important contribution to safety of life offshore. For consideration in the selection process, nomination forms must be sutmitted to NOIA by Friday, February 19, 2016.  Nominations may be submitted on behalf of your own company or for another NOIA member company.
