EUsalt Safety Award
Every year since 2016, EUsalt is rewarding members that show excellence in the area of health and safety at work. The aims of the EUsalt Safety Award are:
- to recognise members’ commitment and innovative initiatives regarding health and safety at the workplace
- to foster safety innovation in the salt sector by providing a platform to showcase best practice models for the industry
Projects put forward by members may concern any aspect of safety inside or outside the company, including workers’ safety, environmental or road safety, but also safety leadership and stewardship towards workers or communities.
The participating projects are presented at the annual EUsalt conference and the winner is announced at the end of the event. The EUsalt trophy is a salt carving created by Irish artist Ruth E Lyons.
Impact, innovation and practicality are the criteria against which the participating projects are evaluated.
The assessment is carried out in two phases. In a first phase, external judges together with the EUsalt Board of Directors and the members of the EUsalt Health & Safety Working Group assess the written projects. In a second phase, the participants in the EUsalt conference are given the opportunity to vote following the presentation of the projects.
