Organisations of all shapes and sizes from across the world are now able to enter the 62nd RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, headline sponsored by NEBOSH. Applications opened on Monday (October 2).
For the first time, the application process for the awards will count towards the applicant’s CPD, making a RoSPA Award entry a great way to stay on top of professional development in the health and safety field.
Recognised as the most rigorous and respected health and safety awards scheme in the UK, the long-running initiative recognises organisations’ commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.
NEBOSH will be the headline sponsor for the thirteenth consecutive year. Click here to watch NEBOSH Chief Executive, Teresa Budworth outline some of the benefits that can be gained by entering.
The awards will be presented next year in London on June 19, Birmingham on July 4 and 5, and Glasgow on September 13.
Not only is a RoSPA Award a great reputational and morale boost for any organisation, but it can also help in career development for the health and safety professional.
Dawn Francis-Jones, Assistant Director of Health and Safety from South and City College Birmingham, winner of the Education and Training Services Sector at the RoSPA Awards 2017, commented: “When entering the RoSPA Awards, you are determining whether you are achieving the highest standards in health and safety. To do well, you need to have a passion for doing the right thing and aim for perfection – striving for these goals also allows me to improve my professional development, which in turn brings health and safety progress to the college.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, said: “We’ve had a fantastic awards season in 2017, RoSPA’s centenary year, with nearly 2,000 entrants from across a range of sectors, and are hoping for an even bigger and better year in 2018.
“We advise anyone who is planning on entering to register and start the process as early as possible, not only to take advantage of the discount, but also to ensure they are as thorough as possible with their entry. There’s a reason that the entry process is so rigorous – we hold our winners to the highest possible industry standards, ensuring that the RoSPA Health and Safety Award is the most respected in the business.”
