RoSPA Awards Excellence Forum - Middle East

Our Awards Excellence Forums provide the opportunity to hear presentations from organisations, which are in different stages in their RoSPA Awards and safety journeys.

This RoSPA Awards Excellence Forum is focussed on the Middle East and will cover topics and issues organisations face within this region.

What are the Awards Excellence Forums?

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 Forums?

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.

Our Awards Excellence Forum will provide an opportunity to hear presentations from local organisations who are at different stages in their safety journeys, as well as virtually meet some of the RoSPA team.

Presentation of the Awards Ambassadors Certificate

The RoSPA Awards Ambassadors are a select group of some of the world’s most successful leaders in health and safety. They are members of our Award winner’s community who have demonstrated excellence in their commitment to Health and Safety. By strengthening the connection between RoSPA-Award-winning organisations and their stakeholder communities the Awards Ambassadors represent a tremendous force for good, potentially bringing the high standards of occupational safety and health - that we increasingly take for granted - to a much wider audience.
