Highways England’s Health, Safety & Wellbeing awards are designed to recognise celebrate and share achievements and excellence in health and safety performance across the industry from our suppliers and employees. We cannot do our work and deliver the government’s Road Investment Strategy and all the exciting work in our Delivery Plan, without our suppliers and staff.
Our Health, Safety & Wellbeing awards will recognise the hard work and achievements in this area through an award scheme of its own.
They will be awarded annually to those individuals, teams, projects and companies who make a significant contribution to our first imperative – that no one should be harmed when travelling or working on the strategic road network.
This scheme sits alongside our existing Supplier Recognition Scheme Awards and will culminate in our special award event on 7 March 2018 where the winners and highly commended will be announced.
The awards are open to Highways England employees, our suppliers and their supply chain (extended supply chain, small and medium enterprises etc).
We hope our suppliers will make entries for both award schemes and will join us to celebrate at the award events in March.
Health, Safety & Wellbeing award categories for 2017 are:-
- Health & Safety Innovation
- Excellence in road user safety achievement
- Project of the Year (open to supply chain only for construction projects)
- Graduate/Apprentice of the Year
- Health & Wellbeing Initiative of the Year
- Excellence in Health & Safety Performance
If you know of or have been involved in projects or initiatives delivered by suppliers that fit into one or more of these categories, please encourage all your suppliers and their supply chain (extended supply chain, SME’s etc) to enter.
The closing date for entries for the Health, Safety & Wellbeing Awards is 5pm on 15 December 2017 and entries will be judged by a panel of senior subject matter experts, including our Chief Executive Jim O’Sullivan, and judges from our supply chain.
