The Electrical Safety Roundtable Above and Beyond Awards (ABA) for 2023 opened for entries on 30 October 2023 and the deadline for entries has been extended to 1 March 2024. The ABA, created by the Electrical Safety Roundtable (ESR) Workplace group, aim to recognise and celebrate individuals and organisations who go above and beyond their legal duty and strive to enhance and improve electrical safety within the workplace.
The awards are open to all individuals and organisations with a notable interest in electrical safety and will be judged on evidence from the past 24 months. The ABA provides an opportunity to share best practices and promote electrical safety, gain recognition, and provide clients and customers with confidence in products and services.
Categories to enter include:
- Product of the Year
- Paul Skyrme Electrical Safety Initiative of the Year
- Changemaker of the Year
- Derek Thompson Industry Service Award
Commenting on the ABA, Paul Meenan, Chair of the ESR Workplace group, says, ‘’The ESR are extremely proud that these awards are ever expanding in their efforts to recognise excellence in electrical and product safety. The ABA are that opportunity for all in the industry to be publicly recognised as making the difference.’’
Charlotte Bamber, who joins us as a new judge this year, says, ‘‘I would encourage people to get involved, we can often be hesitant when it comes to shining a light on our achievements and successes. The ABA awards are so much more than simply winning an award. It’s important that we don’t just share the horror stories, but we celebrate achievements and learn from each other when something has been a success. The Above and Beyond Awards are the perfect way to do this – help gain the recognition that you or someone else deserves and remember that you could inspire or motivate others to improve electrical safety and save lives.’’
The Above and Beyond Awards are open for entries now and close on 1 March 2024, with winners announced in April.
