About the International Safety Awards
The International Safety Awards is an annual scheme designed to recognise and reward good health and safety management by organisations of all sizes and sectors around the world during the previous calendar year.
Organisations answer a series of online questions about their management of occupational health and safety risks at a specific site or business unit which are marked by independent adjudicators. If the application meets the required standard, a pass, merit or – for really exceptional submissions – a distinction is awarded.
