DuPont offers cash for the filthiest worker photo

Most of you have done some dirty dancing with a vacuum hose, pressure washer or other tool, or wallowed in a tank or a pit to clean a tank or repair a component. Getting dirty is what you do sometimes as a GOM support services contractor.

Well now DuPont is looking to reward you for working in filthy situations. The company recently announced its second-annual DuPont Tyvek Dirty Work Photo Contest, and is inviting North American industrial workers to submit a photo of the grimiest job they’ve performed while wearing a Tyvek protective suit.

“Every day, millions of workers throughout North America get themselves dirty as they work on some of industry’s messiest jobs, particularly in oil and gas and environment,” said Dave Kee, North America marketing manager, Industrial Protective Apparel ─ DuPont Protection Technologies.  “This is our tribute to the many people who use DuPont Tyvek protective apparel to keep safe and clean while doing their jobs.”
