The shortlist of finalists for the Inspiring Safety Awards was published today.
The awards are organised by Lattitude Productions to celebrate imagination, passion and achievements in behavioural safety. They are the first of their kind. There are three categories: most inspiring individual, most inspiring team or organisation, most inspiring campaign or initiative.
Among the shortlisted finalists are a company whose bosses cook their teams a hot lunch, a man who thought it made more sense to train forklift drivers in the factory they were going to be driving around, and a group who learns how to do risk assessments in the tiger enclosure of a safari park.
“I was thrilled at the high standard of entries,” said Rob Coyle, Managing Director of Lattitude Productions which organises the awards. “It is amazing to see the enthusiasm and energy people put into making life safer for others. It is time these people get the credit they deserve and I hope the Inspiring Safety Awards can go some way to achieving that.”
