The British Safety Council will be presenting two special individual awards: the ‘Health and Safety Champion of the Year’ and the ‘Young Health and Safety Champion of the Year’ at the Gala Dinner of the International Safety Awards, taking place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on the 27th of April 2018. This year represents the sixth year that the British Safety Council will be presenting the awards.

These accolades recognise exceptional individual performance of non-health and safety professionals who have played a significant role keeping their work colleagues safe and healthy. The Health and Safety Champion of the Year Award will go to a nominated employee aged 25 or over, while the Young Health and Safety Champion of the Year Award will be given to a worker aged between 16 and 24.

This year, organisations were also allowed to nominate for two new categories: the Award for Employee Wellbeing Initiative, which recognises and rewards organisations which have implemented initiatives promoting and demonstrating a proactive and effective approach to improving worker wellbeing, and the Award for Innovation to Improve Occupational Health and Safety, which recognises and rewards organisations that demonstrated a fresh and innovative approach to improving health and safety at work.

“This year we have introduced two new award categories which reflect the changing nature of workplace health and safety. The nominations for the Award for Employee Wellbeing Initiative show the growing commitment and investment companies are making in workplace wellbeing. We are also delighted to introduce the Award for Innovation to Improve Occupational Health and Safety that rewards businesses demonstrating fresh thinking in their efforts to improve health and safety of their workers,” explained Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council.

In 2018, 143 organisations nominated individual employees for these awards. The applicants come from organisations operating in a wide range of industry sectors and countries, including the United Kingdom, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The winners of the awards will be announced at the Gala Dinner on Friday, 27th of April.
