Technical Safety BC is gearing up to recognize outstanding achievement, innovation and leadership in the field at awards this fall. The independent organization, which oversees the safe operation of technical equipment including boilers and elevators, announced yesterday that it will be accepting nominations for the 2018 Lieutenant Governor Safety Awards until Sept. 14.
“The owners and operators of technical equipment play a pivotal role in safety each time they make a decision about their equipment, facilities and management of safety risks,” said Catherine Roome, president and CEO of Technical Safety BC. “We’re proud to honour those who are making B.C. safer every day.”
To qualify, individuals and organizations must possess industry expertise as well as knowledge of risks. There are four possible awards categories to enter:
- Exceptional Contribution to Technical Safety (Asset Owner)
- Exceptional Contribution to Technical Safety (Contractor)
- Excellence in Safety and Technical Training
- Data and Digital Technology in Technical Safety
Nominations will be evaluated by a selection committee made up of people from organizations key to the province’s technical safety system, including one senior leader from Technical Safety BC. Award winners will be recognized at the Parq Vancouver on Nov. 7.
