SAFETY WITHOUT COMPROMISE

In 2006, GLDD adopted an Incident-and Injury-Free (IIF®) safety management program that has been integrated into all aspects of the company’s culture. The company’s commitment to the IIF® culture promotes a work environment where employee safety is paramount.

Our Safety Journey

In 2005, Douglas Mackie, President of Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, made the decision to change the company’s values and day-to-day operations by elevating safety operations to the highest priority.

To help, Great Lakes brought in an international safety consulting firm to usher in a new approach to safety – the Incident-and Injury-Free (IIF®) safety program.

The IIF® helps realign a company’s safety culture by enforcing accountability and compliance of rules and regulations. This creates a safety-oriented mindset and helps eliminate work-related incidents and injuries.

Programs & Codes

The International Safety Management Code (ISM) provides an international standard for the safe management and operation of ships as well as the prevention of pollution. Accident prevention, safety, and environmental protection are top priorities in the company’s planning, project operations, and equipment maintenance. By leveraging the ISM, we can help create a work environment that fosters awareness of safety and environmental concerns.
