Things to consider when submitting an entry
- Make your entry as detailed and informative as you can, as this will help the judges during their deliberations;
- Try to provide tangible evidence to support what you or your nominee has achieved when explaining why they have been nominated.
Judges from last year’ s awards gave the following words of advice:
“Show technique, an outcome (with a measurable result) or even outstanding charisma and influencing skill (with an objective result).”
“Display evidence of person-centred approaches to health and safety, evidence of the impact made and innovation.”
“Portray pure passion and innovative programs which have made a difference in making people safer at work.”
“Describe the measures they used to determine they made a positive impact and mistakes they made and learnt from and what would they do differently if they had a magic wand.”
Rob Jukes, who was named as SHP Rising Star UK and Rising Star in Manufacturing in 2019, and a judge in 2021, had the following to say about past nominees:
“When you look at past finalists, they have all demonstrated an ability to succeed within their role and have gone further by being involved in various industry schemes and projects. If you then look at the winners, they have demonstrated that they have a clear passion for the profession. That they really care for their employees and have put so much effort and hard work into helping the employees they are responsible for be healthy and safe at work and the organisations to which they belong succeed. For me they are people that inspire me and remind me how great this profession is.”
