BSIF Awards 2020

01 April 2020

The prestigious BSIF Safety Awards recognise the fantastic work that occurs within the UK Safety Industry. The Awards specifically celebrate excellence within customer service, product innovation and safety solutions, all with the key goal of improving occupational health and safety.

After the success of the 2019 Safety & Health Excellence Awards held at The Vox, Birmingham in April, the BSIF awards will once again be a key part of the evening. This year’s Awards will be held on Wednesday 29th April at The Vox, Birmingham. The Awards evening is the perfect place for our awards as it highlights and celebrates the innovation found within the UK safety market.

Following the same format for entry as last year for the product innovation award, all products will be considered based on their submissions. The finalists will then go forward to the judging day which will be held at the end of February. The judging panel is made up of independent industry experts who will consider each product on its merits. The companies that make the finalist shortlist will have the opportunity to present their products to the judges allowing them to highlight the innovation contained within.

The judges will then score the products and the winner will be announced alongside the winners of the Safety Solution Award and Customer Service Award winners, at The Safety & Health Excellence Awards at The Vox, Birmingham on Wednesday 29th April.

Finalists and award-winning companies will receive immediate benefit as they will be featured in the pre/post exhibition publicity. Additionally, the winners and finalists will feature within the BSIF Industry guide.

2020s BSIF Awards sees the introduction of a new category to be recognised alongside the existing three. The Water Pollution Prevention Award, supported by the Environment Agency and the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, will recognise the efforts made by business to protect the environment and ensure that all water pollution risks are managed in an effective and efficient way. The Water Pollution Prevention Award is a fantastic opportunity for your environmental efforts to be recognised, providing great PR both inside your business and to the wider market.

The four award categories are:

Product Innovation: An award for products that are new and innovative and will contribute to improvements in occupational Health & Safety.

Service Awards: An award for companies in the safety field offering exceptional and innovative service solutions. Voted for by the entrants’ own customers.

Safety Solution Award: Based on case studies submitted by members, these recognise major improvements in occupational safety created in 2018/2019.

Water Pollution Prevention Award: Based upon a submitted case study demonstrating how the entrant company managed the risk of incidents that could lead to the pollution of the water environment, surface water or groundwater.
