COVER STORY


Above all, the RoSPA Guardian Angel Awards seek to reward the actions of those who would otherwise go unrecognised - in doing so motivating others to take up the torch and help shape a safer society for all.


Nominating an individual for a Guardian Angel Award gives organisations the chance to reward an employee or member of the community for their contribution. It also helps to boost morale, drive up safety standards, improve a firm’s reputation and highlights commitment to a safer workplace or community.


designed to recognise individuals who have worked tirelessly to promote safety in their workplace or community.


RoSPA’s Guardian Angel Awards were launched earlier this year to shine a light on individuals who have gone “above and beyond” to improve the safety of others. The awards scheme honours those whose initiative, diligence, enthusiasm and commitment have made a real difference to safety in the organisation where they work or in the wider community. This year was the first time that RoSPA ran an awards scheme for individuals.


People who deserve special recognition as a RoSPA Guardian Angel are all around us but often go unnoticed. Whether they are employed within a safety role or have used their initiative, skills and energies to make life safer in their community, we want to hear from you to shine a light on these modest role models who set a fantastic example to the rest of us and would never seek applause for themselves.


Potential RoSPA Guardian Angels could include: “shop-floor” workers who have been proactive in championing safety through their day-to-day jobs; health and safety managers who have gone the extra mile to improve the wellbeing of their colleagues; employees who contribute to corporate social responsibility, for example by taking part in activities that benefit the wider community; or teachers and youth workers who help children and young people learn that safety is an enabler of activity, rather than an inhibitor, for example through adventure activities and expeditions.

At RoSPA we believe that one of the greatest gifts in the world is to share responsibility for each other’s lives. In an emergency, nearly everyone would step up to help another, and we see examples of this selflessness every day - it is an extraordinary human quality which we find all around us and within us.


A RoSPA Guardian Angel exhibits these unselfish qualities tirelessly and, without any fuss, gets on with the practical and seemingly routine business of helping people to stay alive and free of injury whilst living their lives to the full.


Nominations are invited for a RoSPA Guardian Angel Award by registering online. The closing date for completed nominations is 4th February 2015. Successful nominees will be invited to receive their award at a prestigious presentation ceremony to celebrate this fantastic accolade. An official keepsake photograph is taken during the presentation of each Guardian Angel Award, and sent out to the recipient after the event. The recognition of their contribution will inspire others to save lives and reduce injuries across the UK.
