A welcome from BSIF
British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) chief executive Alan Murray introduces this
year’s prestigious BSIF Awards.
THE BSIF Safety Awards are renowned for
recognising excellence within the safety
industry, in customer service and in
product innovation, and have the key
goal of improving occupational safety
and health in the UK.
The three categories of award are:
Product Innovation, Safety Solution and
An award for products that are new and
innovative and will contribute to
improvements in occupational safety and health
in the UK.
An award for companies in the safety field that offer
exceptional and innovative service solutions.
Nominated by the entrants’ own customers, who

Based on case studies submitted by members, these
awards recognise major improvements in
occupational safety as a result of a supplier/customer
project created in 2017/2018.
This year, we received a record number of entries,
which illustrates the fantastic work that is taking place
in the safety and health industry in the UK. The
companies that have entered our awards recognise
that through their hard work and innovative thinking,
we can collectively continue to keep people at work
The awards are a celebration of safety
and health, and help demonstrate
the importance of the role they
play across all industries in the
UK. It’s time to move away
from the notion of safety
and health as a ‘burden’ and,
instead, celebrate and truly
recognise the vital role we
all have in looking after
employees while they are at
work. The UK has one of the
best safety and health records
in the world; that is something to
be proud of and something to be
shouted about, and that is the purpose
of the BSIF Safety Awards.
Congratulations to all recipients of a BSIF Award and
thank you to the record number of people who
entered. I hope all of you enjoy what promises to be a
fabulous night of entertainment.
