The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2020 are now open for registration
The RoSPA Leisure Safety Awards 2020 are now open for registrations, following a successful inaugural year.
The Leisure Safety Awards are part of the wider RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, with entrants to those now representing more than 7million people worldwide, helping to keep them safe at work and beyond.
Sponsored by NEBOSH, the RoSPA Awards are open to organisations and individual projects of all shapes and sizes and from all sectors, and culminate in the famous gala dinner evenings in London, Birmingham and Glasgow. As well as offering non-competitive achievement awards – in which Gold, Silver, Bronze and Merits are awarded – entrants can bid to be crowned the winner across 24 industry sectors.
In 2019 RoSPA introduced the Leisure Safety Awards, sponsored by Sportscover, which recognise excellence among companies that primarily offer services direct to guests and visitors. In its first year, Gold Award recipients included De Vere, Go Ape!, K:A Leisure and Nottingham City Council – Sport and Leisure, with Go Ape! taking home the Leisure Safety Trophy, which is presented to the overall highest performer.
Awards are also presented to those who demonstrate their commitment to safety outside of the workplace through the Safe@Work-Safe@Home Award, sponsored by L’Oréal, and the contribution of individuals and teams is recognised through the RoSPA Inspiration Awards.
Entrants gain access to a growing, worldwide community of likeminded professionals through the Awards Excellence Forum, sponsored by HSE Recruitment – a place to share and learn from best practice, enabling the improvement of health and safety systems globally, through regular events and seminars. And those looking to gain the highest possible accolade can partner up with high-performing entrants as part of the mentorship programme.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards, yesterday said:
“The RoSPA Awards are no longer just an awards scheme – they have gone way beyond that as, by working with our fantastic entrants, we are driving up health and safety standards around the world, making sure more and more people leave work unharmed each and every day.
“Through the Awards Excellence Forum, we know organisations are constantly improving their health and safety practices, and the entry process itself enables practitioners and teams to reflect and learn – and they earn CPD points.
“RoSPA is also committed to improving its processes, and updates to entry guidance this year will ask organisations to focus on ‘why’ they take health and safety actions, so judges will be looking for evidence that is reflected in workplace culture.”
The RoSPA Awards 2020 are open for registration as of yesterday (Tuesday, October 1) – register before October 31 to take advantage of early-bird discounts, and there are further discounts for RoSPA members.
The presentation ceremonies and gala dinners will take place on May 19 in London, June 4 in Birmingham, and September 17 in Glasgow.
For more information on how to register and what the entry process involves, see www.rospa.com/awards.

Note to broadcasters: RoSPA has its own ISDN studio.
