The Sir George Earle Trophy

The Sir George Earle Trophy is the top award in the RoSPA Health & Safety Awards Scheme. It is awarded to the Industry Sector Award winner demonstrating the most outstanding performance in health and safety.

Three stand out Industry Sector Award entrants are shortlisted and invited to pitch to our esteemed judging panel. The judging panel also visit the organisations to see their safety management systems in action, and understand their culture through discussion with employees – from the shop-floor to the boardroom.

“…It’s great to be part of the wider efforts that go way beyond way compliance, and strive to prevent accidents in all aspects of people’s lives.”

- Mark Meakin, Head of Health and Safety Services at DMW Environmental Safety Ltd
