Michael J. Casbon Safety Awards

The Michael J. Casbon Safety Awards were developed by the NDA Awards Committee, in conjunction with the NDA Safety Committee. This award honors the legacy of the late Mike Casbon. The intention of this award is to honor companies who have demonstrated excellence in safety. NDA encourages all members, regardless of size, to participate.

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. 

Applications for the 2024 awards season are now closed. Applications for 2025 will open this fall, winners will be determined in January of 2025 and announced at Demolition New Orleans, March 5-8, 2025.
