CEO of the Year


  • James Cumming – Simple Safety Advice Ltd

During the pandemic, James ensured all his clients had access to reliable COVID test kits allowing them to remain productive and maintain business as usual. He also partnered with an HR company to provide specialist advice on compassionate staff issues, including health assessments. He completed site audits and training remotely to support site managers and ensure those additional safety procedures were being adhered to. Some clients requested frequent audits to ensure new safety measures were consistently implemented, which James accommodated.


  • Mr. Ibrahim Lari – SIBCA 

Health, Safety and Wellbeing Ambassador of the Year Award


  • Nick Millington of Network Rail

Nick is the leader of the Network Rail Safety Task Force. He has led a fundamental change in the safety of track workers. Nick spearheaded the elimination of unassisted lookout working when lookout working was disproportionately risky. In partnership with track workers and signalling teams, Nick improved planning methods, track safety equipment and training while ensuring no risk is transferred to another area. Nick also championed the permanent reduction of this form of working as the railway has a history of elasticity and reverting to previous ways of working.


  • Liz Gandara of Collaborative Procurement Partnership
  • Captain Mansoor Khalfan Al- Mansoori of the Dubai Police

Health and Safety Transformation Award – sponsored by Croner–i


  • NDT Global

NDT Global began transitioning from a “Zero Harm” to a “Beyond Zero Harm” strategy to ensure their focus evolved beyond zero accident statistics. Through extensive employee interviews, they identified that areas such as mental health and wellbeing, the environment and positive safety culture were significant to their people. Adopting a new strategy dramatically increased their focus on employee mental health and wellbeing. Their objective was to raise employee awareness of the risks, preventative measures, and resources to support their mental health and wellbeing.

NEW: Seize the Opportunity Award


  • K-Electric

As COVID-19 entered Pakistan in 2020, K-Electric’s role became more important in ensuring continuous power supply to everyone. KE immediately formed a COVID-19 Response Committee to closely monitor the situation and take quick decisions. Various wellbeing webinars were launched. Online training for stress and resilience was also delivered. Two centres were set up for company employees and families to provide free-of-cost vaccination, and all KE staff were fully vaccinated within four months. KE also launched a Mobile Health Vaccination unit fleet to facilitate access to vaccines in communities across Karachi and its adjoining areas. 

  • Don Catchment Rivers Trust

The lockdown of March 2020 could have been a crisis for Don Catchment Rivers Trust. The organisation has a strong community engagement and volunteering programme built around encouraging people to get out, enjoy their natural heritage and participate in community events and activities. Yet, the lockdown meant that the way they worked had to stop. So, Don Catchment Rivers Trust changed the way they worked and re-wrote their engagement plan. All employees agreed to work towards the same goal to get through lockdown for as long as needed and beyond with support from trustees and funders.

The James Tye Award


  • BAE Systems

Whilst focusing on critical safety controls and lifesaving rules, BAE Systems found a greater need to engage with its workforce quickly and easily, especially employees without regular computer access. Safety in 60 is BAE Systems solution for allowing critical safety information to be available to employees, customers, contractors and visitors in bite-size chunks and using QR technology to make the information more accessible. This simple solution was to take multi-page complex procedures, summarise them into 60-second videos, and make them available at the point of work.

Wellbeing Initiative Award – powered by Being Well Together


  • Collaborative Procurement Partnership

The objective of the Collaborative Procurement Partnership was to find innovative and inclusive ways of supporting the health and wellbeing of colleagues during the COVID-19 pandemic as they continued to supply vital products to the NHS. They were keen to ensure they provided a range of new and ground-breaking initiatives to support staff physical, mental health and wellbeing.
