The Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Health and Safety 2019 recognise and reward the exceptional inspiration, dedication and achievement of staff and students in health and safety, and in health and wellbeing, at the University.

Last held in 2017, the winner of the VC’s own personal award will also win £250 in gift vouchers.

Awards include the:

  • Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Health and Safety, chosen by the VC as the most inspiring entry this year.
  • Wellbeing Safety and Health ‘Special Recognition’ awards – selected on each application’s own merits to recognise people who have shown dedication, inspiration, (preferably sustainable) achievement and/or ‘gone the extra mile’ for health and safety (above and beyond what would normally be expected of them in their role); and
  • University Health and Wellbeing Achievement Award, for people who have made the greatest impact on health and wellbeing in their area.
