On March 20, 2017, the BEDC Division of the NYCDEP held its EHS Forum at the Newtown Creek Visitors Center. Items discussed included performance metrics, audits, program requirements, roles and responsibilities and ways to improve performance. Speakers included acting DEP Commissioner Vincent Sapienza, Acting Deputy Commissioner James Mueller and managers from BEDC, including EHS Director Heather Belovin, Neil Felsher, Leigh Beer, Bruce Ehrich and Sean McAndrew.
The DEP then presented awards to several firms (CM and contractor), as well as to individual site safety personnel.
D&B received an award for “Outstanding Performance on the EHS Management System Audits and Implementation of Best Management Practices for Program Efficiency, Risk Control and EHS Culture” for four projects: NCREG/NCFLO, NC3, BT-1 and CAT-212B.
Congratulations to the D&B staff/managers who made this award possible. Rob DeGiorgio, Chuck Wachsmuth, Dennis Koehler, David Zaremsky, Adam Remick, Gunjan Khandwala, Saskiha Hoyte, Malik Rasool, Chris Harrison and Charlie Frasier.
We also extend our thanks to Bidwell Environmental, our safety sub-consultant on the projects.
