Recognition and Awards

Baker Hughes Recognition Awards for HSE Excellence

The Chairman’s HSE Excellence Award and the President’s HSE Recognition Award are our two prestigious internal programs highlighting teams that have achieved excellent health, safety, and environment (HSE) performance. The Chairman’s Award recognizes sustained performance during the past three years and in 2013 was presented by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Martin Craighead. The President’s Award recognizes excellence during the past year and is awarded by the hemisphere or business segment president. In both cases, teams must meet the enterprise HSE goals and attain a significant HSE achievement.
