PDAC-AME-CDDA Annual H&S Survey

In partnership with the Association for Mineral Exploration (AME) and the Canadian Diamond Drilling Association (CDDA), PDAC develops an annual survey to provide a snapshot of the leading indicators that are related to environment, health and safety, as well as other incidents throughout the year. Survey results and other key findings are presented as a report that is available to all members and non-members.

The PDAC-AME-CDDA Health & Safety Survey continues to inspire the development of safety workshops and initiatives by each association. 


Every year the survey recognizes two companies for their leadership. PDAC presents the Safe Day Everyday Gold Award to the company recording the least number of lost workday incidents during the preceding year. Presentation of the award is made by representatives of PDAC and AME at the annual meetings of both associations.
