A large amount of ‘behind the scenes’ work takes place in the dredging and maritime infrastructure construction industry. As a result, the IADC has created two awards – the Young Author Award and the Safety Award.

Safety Award

The IADC Safety Award is intended to encourage the development of safety skills on the job and to reward people and companies demonstrating diligence in safety awareness in the performance of their profession.

Young Author Award

To stimulate the promotion of new ideas and to encourage the younger men or women working in the dredging industry and related fields, the IADC has instituted the IADC Young Author Award.
