What are the Awards Excellence Forum Networking Events?

Each entrant into the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards gains access to the Awards Excellence Forum – free of charge – which enables you to join any of our networking events throughout the year. These online events will provide you with access to a network of likeminded RoSPA Award entrants, offering support and sharing advice that can help with refining and improving your award entry and previous results, and also your safety management systems and career on a wider level.

Why attend the Awards Excellence Forum Networking Events?

An estimated 2.3million people around the world die from work-related accidents or diseases every year, which equates to more than 6,000 deaths every single day. In total, there are around 340million occupational accidents, and 160million victims of work-related illnesses annually. Within the UK alone, work-related accidents and ill health translate to an estimated annual cost of £15billion.

Work-related accidents and ill health cause major disruption to business processes, negatively impact corporate reputation, can lead to major legal penalties, and have a lasting effect on the quality of life of the individual involved, their family, their friends and their colleagues. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.

"The Awards Excellence Forum will no doubt improve our connections within and outside of our sector. Personally, unlocking the potential in others and assisting them to advance through the awards is a real interest of mine, putting the experience gained over the last five years into practice for the benefit of the global health and safety community."

Barry Robinson CMIOSH, MIIRSM, GIFireE, MIFPO, MIFSM, Regional Health & Safety Manager, AS Watson Superdrug/Savers/the Perfume Shop

The impact COVID-19 has had on education, training and qualifications

Dee Arp, Director of Technical Standards, NEBOSH

As the impact of COVID-19 and the lockdown measures put in place to contain it became clear the education sector faced a challenge. In a very short time frame alternative and adapted approaches to teaching and assessment had to be introduced whilst still ensuring validity, reliability and fairness. Has the pandemic accelerated what has been a slow ‘technological ‘catch-up’ in education and what does the future hold?
