The George L. Wilson Award

Each year at its Annual Summit, DGAC presents the George L. Wilson Award to an individual, organization or company that has demonstrated outstanding achievement in the field of hazardous materials transportation safety.

This honor is awarded in memory of DGAC’s first president, George L. Wilson, who was recognized for his many contributions and life-long dedication to improving the safe transportation of hazardous materials. While any significant act or series of actions could qualify an individual or organization for consideration, the award is not intended as a means to recognize those who have merely served for many years in the hazmat community. A recipient’s past activities must have been characterized by performance well beyond the normal expectations of industry by significant contributions to the development and understanding of national and/or international regulations, promotion of improved and safer responses to hazmat incidents, advancement of public knowledge about hazardous materials transportation safety, or in some other way advancing the safe transportation of hazmat.
