The BSIF Safety Awards 2017
The prestigious BSIF Safety Awards recognise excellence within the safety industry, excellence in customer service,
product innovation and have the key goal of improving occupational health and safety. The 2017 BSIF Safety
Awards will this year be announced at the Health & Safety Event, The NEC, Birmingham on Thursday 23rd March
2017. The event is the perfect place for the awards as it highlights and celebrates the innovation found within the
UK safety market.
In order to develop the awards, slight changes have been made to the way the product innovation award is judged.
Like last year, all products will be considered based upon their entry submissions, the finalists will then go forward
to judging day where the manufacturers will have the opportunity to present their entry to the panel of judges. The
difference this year is that the judges will be joined by a live audience at the Health & Safety Event! Each product
manufacturer will be allowed 15 minutes to present and answer questions from the judges and audience. This will
allow the audience to see the products and get an understanding of them from the presentations being made. It
also allows a much greater level of exposure for all entrants and will maximise the opportunity to promote
innovation at the event. The presentations will take place over the first 2 days of the show with the entrants having
specific time slots in which to deliver. The finalists will then be scored by the panel of judges and the winner
announced, along with the Safety Excellence and Customer Service award winners, on the final day of the show.
Finalists and award winning companies will receive immediate benefit as they will be featured in the pre/post
exhibition publicity. Additionally the winners and finalists will be displayed on the BSIF stand and in the BSIF
All companies are entitled to enter up to three products for the Product Innovation Awards as well as submitting
an entry for the Service Awards and a case study for the Safety Excellence Awards. The entry deadline is end of
