    Has your idea improved safety in food industry?

    Has your idea improved safety in food industry?

    Ideas that have helped make food and drink factories safer and healthier places for employees to work in will be showcased by a new international awards scheme.

    The International Food and Drink Health and Safety Awards 2016 are open to firms of all sizes, based in both the UK and overseas.

    Backed by the Food and Drink Manufacture Health and Safety Forum, the scheme is being run by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health’s (IOSH) food and drink group.

    Doug Russell, chairman of the awards’ panel of judges, says the scheme will honour innovative ideas that have led to successful practical solutions to occupational health and safety issues in the sector.

    Sustainable ideas being sought

    Sharing success stories, he adds, can help reduce the risk of accidents in the food and drink industry and make it a safer one for people around the world to work in.

    This year’s scheme, which is open to overseas companies for the first time, will focus on sustainable solutions and those which can be easily adopted by other firms.

    Entries can be made by both individuals or teams of workers and should be submitted by June 3. As well as a trophy, the overall winner will receive £750. Two runners-up awards are also up for grabs.

    The award winners will be asked to give a presentation about their project during October’s UK National Food and Drink Manufacturing Conference.
