About the Safety Groups UK Awards

SGUK Innovation Awards – in recognition of the innovative work being done to raise the standards of health and safety.

Safety Groups awards

The SGUK Innovation Awards are open to all organisations of any size based or operating in the UK.

Organisations can qualify whether or not they are currently members of SGUK.

The aim is to celebrate and share best practices and the latest thinking and innovation in health and safety management. The overall winner will gain the coveted Lord Cullen Trophy.

SGUK Development Through Education Awards – In recognition of effective educational engagement of learners of any age to advance health and safety.

These awards are open to all organisations of any size based or operating in the UK.

An organisation can have learners of any age in an initiative demonstrating effective educational engagement to advance health and safety.

This is likely to include those in school, at college, in apprenticeships, in university or early in their employment.

The winner will be awarded the SCoS award, a silver punch bowl.

Where relevant, you can submit entries to both the Innovation and Development Through Education categories for the same item.

We are keen to secure as many entries as possible to these two award categories this year.

To reiterate, they are open to organisations that are not yet members of a Safety Group and are free to enter.

Photographs from previous award winners are in the gallery on the Safety Groups UK website.

Winners also receive publicity through the H&S periodicals and social media.
