RoSPA Awards Shortlisted for Awards of its Own!

RoSPA award nominated for two honours

The world-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards scheme – the most coveted prize in occupational health and safety calendar – has itself been nominated for two honours in the Awards Awards 2018.

The RoSPA Awards attracts nearly 2,000 entries every year from organisations around the world and across a range of industries, all of which are proud of and want to display their efforts and achievements in keeping their employees, contractors, clients, customers and members of the public safe from injury and ill health.

It is the world’s longest-running health and safety awards initiative, having launched in 1956.

And now it has been named as a finalist in two categories at this year’s Awards Awards – Best Longstanding Awards Event Over 25-Years-Old, and Best Awards Event by an Association.

Julia Small, head of awards and events at RoSPA, said: “We’re delighted to be finalists in two categories at the Awards Awards. We know how highly a RoSPA Award is valued by members of the occupational health and safety community, and we’re pleased that’s now being recognised by those outside of the field.

“The high standards we set for our winners sets the RoSPA Awards apart, and it helps employers strive to provide good, safe working spaces.”

Split across four dates and three cities, the RoSPA Awards offers non-competitive Achievement Awards, which are attained at Bronze, Silver or Gold level depending on the quality of the entry, while organisations can also enter industry and sector-specific competitive awards. The best entry each year achieves the Sir George Earle Trophy – RoSPA’s top award and the pinnacle for any occupational health and safety team.

This year’s RoSPA Awards take place in London on June 19, Birmingham on July 4 and 5, and Glasgow on September 13. To find out more, see www.rospa.com/awards

Accidents are the biggest threat to you and your family for most your life. In fact, more than 14,000 people die as a result of accidents across the UK each year, while thousands more are maimed and millions are injured. Businesses are ruined. Families are devastated. Children grow up without parents, parents without children. Yet despite the scale and severity of the problem, accidents are still too often discussed with a shrug of the shoulders. There is a pervasive belief amongst some people that accidents are somehow inevitable. That they can't be stopped. Imagine if we took the same attitude towards child abuse. Or cancer. For almost 100 years, RoSPA has been quietly working behind the scenes to change both legislation and attitudes surrounding accidents. From the compulsory wearing of seatbelts and the campaign to stop drink driving, to the Cycling Proficiency Test and to the more recent ban on handheld mobile phones behind the wheel, RoSPA has been instrumental in shaping our society for the better, preventing millions of deaths and serious injuries along the way. As a registered charity, we are committed to continuing this legacy of change.
