Workplace health and safety champions are to be honoured at an annual awards ceremony.
The scheme – first launched in the 1990’s – is run by the West of Scotland branch of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
And it is now seeking nominations for this year’s awards, which are to be presented at Glasgow’s Hampden Park Stadium on April 28.
Nominees should be non-occupational safety and health professionals who have made an important contribution to health or safety within their organisation.
Up to 20 awards to be made
West of Scotland executive member Fraser Allan says the hunt is on for employees who have gone the extra mile to help promote health and safety in their workplace.
IOSH members are being invited to nominate people from their businesses who fit the bill.
Mr Allan says while it is the professionals who implement management systems in their businesses, the awards are about the employees who help make them a success and ensure their colleagues have a safe and healthy place to work in.
It is expected that the ceremony and annual dinner will see up to 20 awards presented by Nattasha Freeman, past president of the IOSH.
