Industry Sector Awards

In 1993 the society introduced individual sector awards to be presented annually for the most outstanding performance in health and safety by a company or organisation within a particular industry or sector.

Entrants must be able to demonstrate a robust and high quality safety management system together with a minimum of four years' consistently excellent or continuously improving health and safety performance.

Each award comprises an engraved trophy to be held permanently.
