Any company that registers before 24 December will receive a discount on their entry fee.The Awards will take place in May at the Safety and Health Expo, in Birmingham. The majority of awards are non-competitive, but competitive awards are given to the best entries in 22 industry sectors, which include construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.RoSPA chief executive Tom Mullarkey said: “The RoSPA Awards recognise organisations which have achieved or are striving to attain excellence in such management practices. More than 1,650 winners were honoured in 2009 and I hope their example will inspire other organisations to enter the scheme, both to gain independent recognition of their own achievements and to contribute to our shared knowledge of good practice.”
