Awards Excellence Forum

What’s going well?

Since 2005 RoSPA has encouraged award winners to share their experience of ‘what works’ in occupational health safety and more recently wellbeing to assist others to develop. The connections between award winners have grown over time informing RoSPA OHS Policy and building a network of ambassadors that can support OHS Professionals and Practitioners to ‘get it right’ for themselves and their organisations.

The Awards Excellence Forum providers a platform for our awards community to share their success, to enter into mentoring arrangements to improve their standing in the RoSPA Awards and to gain valuable CPD opportunities.

We are now bringing the Awards Excellence forum to a location near you, so don’t miss out and book your place now on one of the below dates or contact events@rospa.com for more information.
