Applying for an Award

Given the situation with the corona virus we did not have an award scheme for 2020 or 2021 


Our awards scheme has been going since 1968 when a shield for large organisations was inaugurated  and in 1978 a shield for smaller companies/organisations was introduced. Since then we have had awards for small businesses, a training award, a well being award, an employee of the year award and a community excellence award. These awards are highly regarded by our members and fiercely competed for.

The award applications are adjudicated by experienced officers and members of our committee and an officer from the Health and Safety Executive.  

Photographs from our awards night are below. 

A list of our past winners can be viewed  HERE

When we do return to having awards our usual criteria below will apply.

Our awards adjudication panel  do not audit award applications or visit your premises

We rely on the honesty and integrity of our members and confidentiality is assured.

Large quantities of information such as your annual report, safety policy, other reports, photographs etc are not required.

If you engaged in partnership working or supported small organisations etc, brief details would be helpful as would brief details of a business case which led to your safety/health initiatives.
