University of Hertfordshire Winner at the SHP (Safety and Health Practitioner) IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) Awards 2013

The University of Hertfordshire was shortlisted for two awards in the SHP IOSH Awards 2013; ‘Best Health and Safety Achievement in Public Services’ and ‘Campaign of the Year’.

The University won the Campaign of the Year award 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 were announced at The SHP IOSH Awards, the UK's premier cross-industry event, on Thursday 24 October at the London Hilton, Park Lane. These awards aim to celebrate the achievements and initiatives of health and safety practitioners and organisations nationally.

Monica Kanwar, Director of Occupational Health and Safety at University of Hertfordshire told USHA “we were thrilled and very excited to be shortlisted for two awards. On winning the Campaign of the Year the comments from the judges were high praise indeed and we are very proud of all those that took part. This recognises the tremendous work undertaken by the whole team and our passionate commitment to safety and wellbeing”.
