Awards Review 2013

Presentation Ceremony

With nearly 2,000 entrants, 2013 was another record year for the RoSPA Awards - the leading occupational health and safety awards programme.

The awards and trophies were presented at prestigious ceremonies over three days in May at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole Hotel and at the Glasgow Hilton in September.

As previously, the Birmingham events ran alongside the Safety & Health Expo at the NEC, Europe's foremost annual exhibition event for the safety and health industry.

Daytime presentations were made by RoSPA Chairman Eric Wiles, Vice Chair, Michael Hampson, Trustees Ian Bucknall, Eric Clark, John Clayton and Mike Parker CBE and RoSPA Deputy Chief Executive Errol Taylor.

Major award winners received their awards at evening gala dinners from RoSPA CEO Tom Mullarkey MBE with RoSPA President Lord Jordan CBE (Tuesday and Wednesday in Birmingham); RoSPA Vice President Lord Brougham & Vaux CBE (Thursday in Birmingham) and in Scotland with Eric Wiles, RoSPA Chairman. Around 3,500 guests attended the celebrations, including important guests from across the world of safety, from industry and from Government. The events were truly international affairs, with award winners and guests representing organisations from the UK and all around the world.

A great time was enjoyed by all and following an excellent meal, after-dinner entertainment was provided in Birmingham by comedian, Patrick Kielty and in Glasgow by accomplished wit and raconteur Bert Thomson.

After a powerful and emotionally charged video appeal about blind cord safety and driveway safety, dinner guests at all dinners generously donated invaluable funds to RoSPA's vital mission work in other areas of safety, via the charity prize draw.

Recent celebratory events for the leading RoSPA Awards programme have usually been fully booked - and with top class dining, first rate entertainment and live music all at a competitive price it's not hard to see why!
