The National CDM and Student Designer Awards 2019 are now open for entries
The search is on for this year’s star performers in the Association for Project Safety’s [APS] national awards. It’s time for professionals and students to put their best work forward and to see how they match up to other leaders in the construction sector. Winners have to be the very best to beat the competition and we are looking forward to seeing all the skill, innovation and problem solving the entries will, undoubtedly, demonstrate.
The APS awards are the only national awards to celebrate inspirational good practice in design and construction health and safety risk management. While they are always a time for celebration our awards are also much more than that. They serve a very serious purpose by setting an acknowledged industry-wide benchmark of excellence and highlighting how good design can help cut deaths, injury and ill-health.
There are two competitions recognising professional excellence and future industry leaders. They are for: 1) professionals working in design and construction health and safety risk management; and 2) student designers currently in full-time education studying any built environment disciple. Submissions are welcome from non-members as well as current APS members.
This year’s competition categories are:
- Health, Safety and Wellbeing Initiative of the Year
- Project of the Year
- CDM Dutyholder of the Year, and the
- APS National Student Award
