The Sir George Earle Trophy
The pinnacle of the RoSPA Awards scheme is the Sir George Earle Trophy. This prestigious trophy is internationally recognised as the premier performance award for occupational health and safety.
This trophy was donated to RoSPA in 1956 by Sir George Earle, then President of the Associated Portland Cement Manufacturers Ltd to promote and celebrate outstanding contributions to health and safety at work.
Submission requirement: No additional submission is required. This award will be presented to the best sector award winner following a site visit and an interview with the awards adjudication panel.
