Health, Safety & Wellbeing Initiative of the Year
This award recognises best practice in project delivery. We are looking for initiatives used on UK or overseas projects that are seeking to raise the bar and serve as exemplars to the industry. These projects do not have to be complete; what is required is evidence that the project is tackling the specific initiative in a new and innovative way and that its positive impact can be measured or quantified.
Because projects may not be complete, shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by a panel of our judges, selected for their expertise in this area.
This category seeks to recognise project teams that understand the importance of creating a safe and healthy working environment. Judges will be particularly keen to see examples of initiatives that tackle mental health. Judges will be looking for project teams that:
- Have developed an industry leading initiative that others could learn from
- Can demonstrate how the initiative is bespoked/created with this specific project in mind
- Have worked with external stakeholders in conceiving the initiative
- Have demonstrated how they have learned from an accident/incident/near miss
- Can demonstrate deeper links to company initiatives around occupational health and safety
