What Are the Safety in Seas Awards Categories?
Since 2014, NOIA has conferred two distinct safety awards annually to recognize excellence among those who, by their actions, design, or influence, have contributed to improving the safety of life offshore.
The Culture of Safety Award honors 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.
Our industry is built on a foundation of world-class safety, robust regulations, and a commitment to producing energy the right way. Your participation helps NOIA advocate for the American offshore by being able to point specific examples of continuous innovation and dedication to safety. You will be recognized in NOIA advocacy work, including through media recognition, and by NOIA membership during presentations by the winning applicants.
What is Next?
An independent judging committee will select the entrant from each award category that has made the most important contribution to safety offshore. Judging will commence in March 2023. NOIA does not participate in the judging process. Winners will be announced and will receive their awards during the 2023 NOIA Annual Meeting at the beautiful Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., April 26-29, 2023. The winning entrants are expected to present their award-winning programs before their peers at the 2023 NOIA Fall Meeting at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island in Amelia Island, Florida.
