RoSPA Awards 2020
RoSPA Awards 2020: registration open
The international RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2020 is now open for registration.
The RoSPA Awards is open to organisations of all sizes, from different sectors, to register and gather in RoSPA’s famous gala dinner evenings and presentation ceremonies, on May 19 in London, June 4 in Birmingham, and September 17 in Glasgow.
The annual award, sponsored by NEBOSH, has seen an increase in registrations from different organisations. In 2019 there were 2,000 entries from more than 30 countries including Singapore, Brazil, India, Botswana, UAE, Belgium, USA, Ireland and the UK. Winners now represent more than seven-million people worldwide.
As well as offering non-competitive achievement awards, in which Gold, Silver, Bronze and Merits are awarded, entrants can bid to be crowned the winner across 24 industry sectors including oil and gas, construction, engineering and transport, storage and distribution. The overall winner of the International Sector Award in 2019 was Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company, which is headquartered in Bahrain.
Other awards include the [email protected]@Home Award, for those who demonstrate their commitment to safety outside of the workplace, sponsored by L’Oréal, and the contribution of individuals and teams is recognised through the RoSPA Inspiration Awards.
Entrants gain access to a growing, worldwide community of like-minded professionals through the Awards Excellence Forum, a place to share and learn from best practice, enabling the improvement of health and safety systems globally, through regular events and seminars. And those looking to gain the highest possible accolade can partner up with high-performing entrants as part of the mentorship programme.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Awards, said: “The RoSPA Awards are no longer just an awards scheme, they have gone way beyond that as, by working with our fantastic entrants, we are driving up health and safety standards around the world, making sure more and more people leave work unharmed each and every day.
“Through the Awards Excellence Forum, we know organisations are constantly improving their health and safety practices, and the entry process itself enables practitioners and teams to reflect and learn – and they earn CPD points.
“RoSPA is also committed to improving its processes, and updates to entry guidance this year will ask organisations to focus on ‘why’ they take health and safety actions, so judges will be looking for evidence that is reflected in workplace culture.”
