  • it is a major step forward from desktop training to a realistic situation;
  • it is a fun way of giving training;
  • it is fast and efficient.



The committee decided to present the award to SICIM for its Flying Washing Basket, a safe approach to cleaning heavy and large equipment while reducing the hazards of having to climb.


In recognition of its commitment to safety, the committtee named Spiecapag for its Pipeline Safety Application which is an innovative solution for risk assessment resulting in increased usage of JSA (Job Safety Analysis) and hazard reporting.
