The University of Hertfordshire has been shortlisted for two awards in the SHP IOSH Awards 2013.

These awards aim to celebrate the achievements and initiatives of health and safety practitioners and organisations nationally.

The first award that the University has been shortlisted for is the Best Health and Safety Achievement in Public Services. The University’s Occupational Health and Safety Team is recognised for developing a proactive and innovative approach to wellbeing (with a high level of commitment delivering a clear benefit to the University.)

The second award shortlist is for Campaign of the Year which recognises achievement by the Hertfordshire Sports Village in connection with Uno Buses. Together they developed the ‘Uno Buses get into gear and get fit Campaign’ which focused on changing behaviours by specifically targeting staff that are struggling to make lifestyle changes and would benefit the most by the proactive intervention.

The winners will be announced at the awards due to take place on Thursday 24 October at London Hilton Park Lane.

Monica Kanwar, Director of Occupational Health and Safety at University of Hertfordshire told USHA “we’re thrilled and very excited to be shortlisted. This recognises the tremendous work undertaken by the whole team and our passionate commitment to safety and wellbeing”.
