USACE Participation Soars & Membership Expands at CDMCS

The Council for Dredging and Marine Construction Safety (CDMCS) convened this week in Washington, DC on the heels of its Pipeline Task Force Meeting to discuss OSHA regulatory updates, best practices for employee training documentation, opioid identification and prevention, and incident/injury trends in the industry.

Representatives from The Dutra Group, Inland Dredging, Great Lakes Dredge & Dock, JT Cleary, Manson Construction Co., Mike Hooks, Norfolk Dredging, and Weeks Marine attended, as well as the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), the American Waterways Operators (AWO), Coastal and Marine Operators Pipeline Industry Initiative (CAMO), and a record number of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers personnel from districts and divisions across the country.

In its tenth year the CDMCS remains steadfast and true to its vision of creating a 100% injury-free workplace for the dredging and marine construction industries and believes that broadening its base will accelerate that dream and save even more lives.  The council has therefore decided to collaborate more closely with towing and pipeline transportation companies by officially opening up council membership to them.
