We’re off to Chennai – RoSPA Workplace Safety Blog


Only a few months into the year, 2020 is already proving to be more exciting than ever. This March, RoSPA will be launching our first ever Awards Excellence Forum in India. Taking place on Tuesday, March 24at Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Campus in Chennai, India. This free event is a phenomenal example of just how far the RoSPA Health & Safety Awards scheme reaches across the globe.

Hosting this international event is International Awards Ambassador Stephen Storey. With over 27 years of experience in the health and safety industry, combined with his rich RoSPA Award winning history, Stephen will be presenting an overview of the awards scheme.

Awards Excellence Forums provide a platform for existing and potential Award winners to share their success, to enter into mentoring arrangements, to improve their standing in the RoSPA Awards, to ask questions and learn more and to gain valuable CPD hours.

What is the theme for the event?

Sharing safety excellence, something which RoSPA’s own Dr Karen McDonnell, is a huge advocate of. As Karen often says, “when we share success, we become stronger and more resilient” and “being connected with others is so fundamentally important… different perspectives help shape the next steps.”
