The Bruce Wilson Contractor Safety Award was established more than a decade ago as a tribute to an outstanding EAPUOC Damage Prevention Consultant. Presented annually at our December General Meeting, the award recognizes an individual who:

  • Is involved in creating ground disturbances;
  • Understands the importance of consistently following the rules with respect to working around buried facilities;
  • Demonstrates concern for fellow workers and safety of the general public.

EAPUOC is proud to recognize distinguished achievement in the digging community.
