Enter now for the BSIF Safety Awards 2014
Submissions are now open for the BSIF Safety Awards, which are taking place at the Safety & Health Expo at ExCeL London in June.
The awards, which reward excellence in customer service, product innovation and demonstrable improvements in occupational health and safety are open to both members and non-members looking to publicise their products and services.
The three award categories that companies can put themselves forward for are:
Product innovation — an award for products that are new and innovative and will contribute to improvements in occupational safety and health. Last year this award was won by Paftec Ltd for their Clean Space 2 Powered Respirator.
Service awards — for companies in the safety field offering exceptional and innovative service solutions voted for by the entrants’ own customers. Last year it was won by WC Willis & Co Ltd.
Safety excellence — based on case studies submitted by members, these awards recognise major improvements in occupational safety created in 2013. Last year this was awarded to J&K Ross Ltd for their work with Northern Powergrid.
The deadline for entries is Friday 21 March. For full information visit www.bsif.co.uk
