Our 58th annual black tie Gala Dinner at the opulent Grosvenor House Hotel in the heart of Mayfair, London was held on Friday 6 May 2016.

The International Safety Awards 2016 Gala Dinner celebrated the success of those organisations that are committed to the health, safety and well-being of their employees. The event combined formal award presentations and a three course, fine dining experience with an evening of live entertainment.  Award winners and anyone with an interest in workplace health and safety were invited to enjoy this spectacular evening.

This year's Gala Dinner was hosted by Cathy Newman, broadcaster, journalist and newsreader, and featured a keynote speech delivered by Susan Elston, Global VP Operational Solutions and Director Operations, New Geographies at Sodexo Energy & Resources.
