APS calls for CDM Awards entries


The Association for Project Safety (APS) is calling for entries for its ninth National CDM and Student Designer Awards.

Entries will close on Tuesday 31 May and will be judged by a panel of industry figureheads, including the Health and Safety Executive, over the summer. Shortlisted entries will be announced in September with the winner being revealed at an awards ceremony in London on 27 October.

Richard Wilks, APS President, said, “We’re committed to shaping and sharing good practice within the Design and Construction Health and Safety Risk Management sector and we’re calling for all industry professionals and design students to play their part.

“By entering the APS awards, companies, individuals and students are providing industry with a benchmark of excellence to work towards; raising standards and making the industry a safer and healthier place for all construction workers.

“This year’s competition really is stand out to other similar events within the sector. With nine different categories to enter, each and every award recognises the vital role construction Health and Safety plays within the industry – not perhaps just one or two categories at other industry award ceremonies.

He added, “What’s more, new to this year’s awards programme is all shortlisted entries will be invited to attend an exclusive event at the House of Commons, where they will have the opportunity to discuss how Parliament champions the Health and Safety and Risk Management industry in Westminster. It’s an opportunity not to be missed – to not just network and share good practice, but to shape the future of our industry too.”

Categories include Health and Safety, Project of the Year, Principal Designer of the Year, Client of the Year, Principal Contactor of the Year, BIM initiative Project, Consultancy of the Year, and Health and Safety Innovation.
