Winners' Information

ExCeL, London:  8 September, 2020
Birmingham venue and date to be confirmed
Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Glasgow Central: 17 September, 2020

Congratulations! The 2020 RoSPA Health and Safety Awards ceremony and gala dinner offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate your organisation's achievement and commitment to raising the standards of health and safety management.

Important information regarding coronavirus
Due to our London ceremony being co-located to the Safety & Health Expo, which has now been postponed until September, we have taken the decision to also move the ceremony to Tuesday, September 8. Given the latest Government advice, we have also taken the decision to postpone the Birmingham ceremony, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. We are working on confirming a new date. We are also in close contact with the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Glasgow Central about the ceremony there, but there are currently no planned changes to that event. 

As an organisation committed to proportionate risk management, RoSPA is also following UK Government advice with regards to actions to prevent the spread of coronavirus. As part of our precautionary measures, we have updated the Awards Gala Dinner Terms and Conditions to reflect any issues presented by coronavirus, and we urge all winners and attendees to review them.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our awards ceremonies. Any number of guests are welcome to attend the daytime presentations, allowing all who have contributed to the organisation's achievements to celebrate their success. Informal seating will be available allowing supporters to watch proceedings, whilst the nominated person is presented with the award.

Timing is critical to the smooth running of the ceremony and we would therefore make the following recommendations:

  • Arrive at least 15 minutes before your registration time and wait in the presentation room for your group to be called to register.
  • Help keep delays to a minimum by adhering to the rule of 'one recipient per award'.
  • The nominated recipient should report promptly to the registration desk when your group number is called.

We will endeavour to present your award within 40 minutes of registration.

Registration and presentation time notifications will be sent via email by mid August for the London, Birmingham and Scotland ceremony. If you have not received details by this date, please contact the RoSPA Awards administration team on +44 (0)121 248 2090/91.

Group photographs

Successful health and safety management undoubtedly involves team effort. A great way to recognise the whole team's contribution is with a group photograph.

On the day please visit the group photograph room once you have collected your award.

eric davidson

Eric is recognised as one of Scotland's finest After Dinner Speakers, Comedians and Speech Writers. He was raised in that Cultural Cul De Sac, the Creme de la Skimmed Milk of all Scottish mining villages, Newtongrange, eight miles south of Edinburgh.

Even at the tender age of 11, Eric loved the stage. His Stylophone rendition of Chuck Berry's 'My Ding-A-Ling' took the Newtongrange Church Opportunity Knocks competition by storm.

In his teens he tried Ventriloquism, but ended up too heavy for the guy's knee! After a spell at thrashing a drum kit around for a local Punk Rock band, Eric started writing and performing comic Poetry around the Clubs and Bars of Edinburgh and Glasgow.

In 2003 Eric started performing on the busy Scottish After Dinner Circuit. He has performed across the length and breadth of Scotland and the UK, picking up several After Dinner Speaking awards along the way and sharing Top Tables with major politicians, sporting greats and many Television personalities.
