Rewarding Good Health and Safety

Entries for the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2018 are now open

For 62 years, RoSPA has been rewarding good health and safety practice across all industries, recognising those who work tirelessly to ensure that their colleagues, employees, customers and suppliers go home safe to their families at the end of every day.

It’s this passion for safety – for saving lives and reducing injury – that drives us to do what we do, and it’s that same passion that sees thousands of organisations, large and small, in the UK and overseas, enter the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards every year.

Through the awards, we and our winners have been improving the working practices of organisations around the world as they strive to better themselves, increase productivity, boost morale, improve reputation and, vitally, look after their most important assets – their people.

Why enter?

Plenty of reasons. To start with, a RoSPA award can help you win new clients and tenders. As well as that, you will:

  • Give your team a big morale boost
  • Inspire your people to drive change
  • Maintain the highest standards
  • Gain valuable press coverage
  • Contribute to CPD
  • Give safety superstars the recognition they deserve

What’s more, completing a RoSPA Awards submission involves reflecting on and reviewing your previous year’s occupational health and safety performance. This means entering your submission is an ideal reflective activity which may count towards your continuous professional development portfolio.

Awards categories

There are lots of different awards categories for every type of organisation. There are no first, second or third places for the majority of our awards, with most of them being non-competitive and recognising health and safety achievement. However, there are also competitive awards that recognise outstanding performance in various industry sectors and specialist areas for organisations that wish to be judged against others.

You can find them all at: www.rospa.com/awards/categories

Presentation ceremonies and gala dinners

Winners will receive their awards at one of four prestigious ceremonies or gala dinners. Any number of guests are welcome to attend the ceremonies, allowing all who have contributed to the organisation’s achievement to celebrate the success.

The daytime ceremonies are followed by glittering gala dinners which provide the perfect platform for winners to reward the hard work of everyone involved in keeping on top of safety. Each entry is entitled to one free seat – and there are huge discounts on tables of 10 and 12. Winners can expect a fantastic night of celebration with fine food, live music and after dinner entertainment.

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.
