Health and Safety Champion and Young Health and Safety Champion
Once again we are pleased to invite applications for two individual health and safety awards. These awards were introduced to recognise individuals who, through their passion, commitment and dedication, have helped make a difference by keeping their colleagues and others healthy and safe. Organisations submitting an application for an International Safety Award can take the opportunity to submit one or two employees. The awards are free to enter to any site/business unit completing a 2017 International Safety Award application. The two awards are:

  • Health and Safety Champion of the Year
  • Young Health and Safety Champion of the Year

Organisations are only able to nominate ONE employee (applicant) for each of these two awards for each site/business unit application i.e. you can submit one for the Health and Safety Champion and one for the Young Health and Safety Champion per application. 

Winners will be presented with their award on the stage at the 60th Anniversary and 2017 International Safety Awards Gala Dinner. You can view the 2016 winners here.
