Michael J. Casbon Safety Award

Michael J. Casbon Safety Award
The Mike Casbon Safety Award was developed by the NDA Awards Committee, in conjunction with the NDA Safety Committee, and honors the legacy of the late Mike Casbon.

An expert with 25 years of experience in the fields of demolition, decontamination and construction, Mike Casbon was a member of NDA’s Education Committee, Safety Committee and Government Affairs Committee. Mike was instrumental in the development of NDA’s Foundations of Demolition Management education series, and posthumously received NDA’s Hall of Fame Award in 2019. In addition to his contributions to the NDA, he was also a subject matter expert for the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) and had trained more than 1,000 compliance officers on field inspection principles.
