NDA Member Safety Award Program

As a leading drilling industry advocate for safe mineral exploration, geotechnical and environmental drilling operations, the National Drilling Association has instituted a Safety Award Program to recognize its drilling contractor members' outstanding safety performance. The program allows drilling contractors of similar size to compete for an award based on their incident rates. Safety Award recipients will be honored, each year, at the NDA Annual Convention.

Original application documents must be submitted to the NDA office by June 30th.
