Proud to be safe, crane and rigging safety award recipients display their awards

The importance of safety to SC&RA is reflected in the awards it presents to individuals and companies each year. Many of the awards are specifically related to safety. However, safety considerations also play a significant role during the selection of other award winners.

For example, safety considerations always factor into the judging of the Hauling and Rigging Job of the Year competitions. Similarly, the Driver of the Year must have an exemplary safety record.
