The APS awards are about celebrating inspirational good practice in construction health and safety, making a positive contribution to its practice and providing others with a benchmark of excellence for the sector to work towards. This has never been more important in the wake of Grenfell and with Brexit around the corner. Applying to the APS awards provides a rare opportunity for applicants to demonstrate the exceptional work they have done over the past year and to help drive up standards across the industry. Winning means recognition from peers, clients and regulators of expertise in the area, personal ethical satisfaction and most importantly - saved lives.
The CDM award categories are about projects and professionals showcasing ways to cut the risk of death and life-changing injury and illness. The awards aim to highlight excellence in the professional practice of design and construction health and safety risk management and to help the industry respond to and prevent disaster like the Grenfell Tower fire.
For those entering the student designer awards, they are an opportunity to be recognised for innovation and imagination in how best to manage risk and to demonstrate how future construction leaders will help make their projects safer for workers and end users.
