PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS International Safety Awards 2019 launched British Safety Council launches International Safety Awards 2019 with new award categories and improvements to make them more globally accessible » » THE BRITISH SAFETY COUNCIL’S International Safety Awards are an internationally recognised accolade for safety excellence. The Awards, in their 61st year in 2019, recognise and reward organisations that have demonstrated a true commitment to achieving high standards of health and safety during the 2018 calendar year. Last year, 550 organisations from a wide range of industries, countries and continents won an International Safety Award. The awards are now open to organisations of all sizes, types and sectors – both members of the British Safety Council and non-members, in the UK and internationally. ‘The new award categories reflect the growing investment of businesses in wellbeing and health, safety and environmental innovation’ The 2019 Awards have been launched earlier than usual, making the themed questions and marking criteria available in June rather than October, to give organisations a better opportunity to plan their health and safety activities in line with the scheme’s requirements. The British Safety Council hopes that the enhanced awards scheme will encourage further improvements in health and safety among businesses, as well as being an internationally recognised reward mechanism. NEW AWARDS RECOGNISING INDIVIDUAL EFFORTS In addition to the Health and Safety Champion Awards, for non-health and safety personnel aged 25 or over and for young employees under 25, who have gone beyond the call of duty to protect their colleagues, the British Safety Council is introducing two new awards: 16 » AUG 2018 » CL EARVI E W- UK .

AWARDS FOR HSE INNOVATION AND WELLBEING Encouraged by the high response to the two new categories of the awards introduced in 2018, which reflect the growing interest and investment in wellbeing and health and safety innovation, the British Safety Council is further refining these awards: • Initiative in Wellbeing Award – that recognises the organisations which believe good health and safety starts with their people • Innovation in Occupational Health and Safety Award – that recognises health and safety achievements of progressiv )ɝͅѥ̸)݅ɑ́ɕͥѡЁ̰) Ցѽˊé݅ɐMѽȁ݅ɑ̰)ɔͼ䁄܁ѕ) Ё չ݅ɐ)Y%9  M =9UL5I-L)́܁݅ɑѼ)ٔ́ɭ́ѡɽ՝ѡՉͥ)٥ȁٔѡɭՕѥ̸) ́ɭ́ݥ䁉݅ɑ)٥ѡЁ́ɕمЁѼѡՕѥ)٥ЁЁѡɥѕɥ)ѱѡɭ͍) !%Y59P M) =9UL5I-L)᥵մѡɕѡȁ́ɭ)ݥ݅ɑѼѥ́ɕѥѼͥѕ)ѡЁٕٔѡɕх́ٔѡ) ɥѥ͠M չٔMхȁ=ѥ)!ѠMՑЀمȁЁЁͥ)ѡ́ѡ啅Ȥ쁅ѡ͔ݡ)ɽ٥٥ɕЁم)=!MLāȁ%M<āѥѥ)ɕѥѼѡЁͥєQ)ɭ́ݥЁɝͅѥ́ѡЁٔ)ɕɑͥЁٕ́Ѡ)ͅ䁅ݕٕȁѡЁ啅ȁ)ݥ͠Ѽѡȁɥѕɕ͔Ѽѡ)Օѥ̸)1չѡ䁅݅ɑ̰5Iͽ)ѡ ɥѥ͠M չé ᕍѥٔ)ͅ胊qIͥѡɽѡ)%ѕɹѥM݅ɑ́ѡѠ)ͅ䁥䰁ѡ ɥѥ͠M չ)хѱɕ٥ٕͥѡ͍)ѼЁɕمЁѼ͕ͥ́ݽɱݥ)ѥѡɕٕɽ݅ɑ)ѥ̰ѡ́啅ȰݔٔɽՍ)͕ٕɅ́Ѽѡ͍ѼЁɔ)ͥȁɝͅѥ́+aQ݅ɑ́ɔ܁)Ѽɝͅѥ́)̰͕ͥ́ѽϊd+qQ܁݅ɐѕɥ́ɕЁѡ)ɽݥٕѵЁ͕ͥ́ݕ)Ѡͅ䁅٥ɽх)مѥQ䁅ͼɕ݅ɐх)٥ՅѵЁݡٔ)役ѡѼɽѕЁѡ)Օ̻t) 1 IQQ!MPeH=)Q!%9QI9Q%=90MQd)]ILP1%99H)ѡݥ́ѡ݅ɑ́ݥ٥ѕ)ѼɅєѡȁՍ́Ёѡхձ(Ё%ѕɹѥM݅ɑ́)ݡݥхЁѡɽٕȁ!͔)!ѕ1ɥ䰀ԁɥ)Qͥєȁѥ́ȁѡ)݅ɑ́́ɥ䰀ā)Յ䁅ѡ)ɕձ́ݥչ5䰀)Յ)Q䁝Ѽ聡輽ܹɥͅɜ)݅ɑ̵ٕ̽݅ɑ̽ѕɹѥ)ͅ䵅݅ɑ̼
