RoSPA launches safety awards programme for 2007

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) wants organisations in the education and training sector to enter the 2007 Occupational Health and Safety Awards.

The Awards include achievement certificates that recognise individual organisations' performance, industry sector awards, and special awards for small and medium-sized businesses, training, occupational health, environmental management and the management of occupational road risk.

Neil Davies, CEO of TTE Training, a 2006 winner said: "Winning the RoSPA Sector Award for Education & Training is very important to us since it validates the health and safety culture that we look to foster. TTE train young people to work in potentially hazardous environments and national awards of this kind assure our trainees and staff that we are a 'best practice' training provider. This is also of great value to our customers."

Tom Mullarkey, RoSPA chief executive, said: "Health and safety is a key component of corporate social responsibility and should be an essential part of every employer's agenda. The way businesses manage health and safety risks speaks volumes about their organisation. Awards not only provide a target for workers and their managers to aim at, they also are a powerful way of recognising and celebrating success in saving lives and reducing injuries."

For the second year, the awards are sponsored by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH).

Presentations to winners will be made at ceremonies alongside the Safety and Health Expo exhibition and RoSPA's Occupational Health and Safety Congress at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, on May 22 -24, 2007.

Closing date for entries is February 19, 2007.
