Southeast Directional Drilling (SEDD) was awarded the Arthur T. Everham Award for Outstanding Safety Performance at the Distribution Contractor’s Association (DCA) 56th annual convention in Nassau, Bahamas on March 6, 2019.

The DCA has been recognizing top-quality safety with this award since 1986 and is judges companies based on number of man hours worked within the judging period. SEDD was in the 200,000 to 599,000 hours division and this was their first time winning the award.

“This has been one of the best safety years we’ve had in the history of SEDD,” says Director of Safety and Transportation Dana Heieie. “This isn’t just an award for people only in the office, or people only in the field. This is an award for all of SEDD.”

This award is given in honor of the late Arthur T. Everham, a founder of Midwestern Contractors and a remembered proponent of safe work practices.

The Arthur T. Everham award will be the sixth recognition of SEDD’s safety record.
