The Occupational Health Awards 2008

Following last year’s hugely successful launch of the first major independent awards for achievement in workplace health, we are calling for entries to the 2008 Occupational Health Awards.

The awards are completely free to enter and are open to everybody with responsibility for health at work, from occupational health practitioners, to HR, to the many professionals working to rehabilitate employees with health problems.

The awards support the government’s aim to spread good practice so that all people of working age can benefit from the innovation and capabilities of people striving to create a healthier workforce.

They are independently judged by respected experts in workplace health, so getting on to the shortlist or winning a category shows that you are setting the pace in how services should be delivered.

Those who are shortlisted will be invited to a glittering awards ceremony and lunch at the Renaissance Chancery Court Hotel, London, on Tuesday 9 December – the perfect way to reward your team’s commitment.
