World of Safety & Health Asia Awards 2021 open for entries

Nominations for the World of Safety & Health Asia (WSH Asia) Awards 2021 are now open. This year, the awards are divided into three categories: safety, health, and technology.

The awards aim to honour companies who have invented creative and revolutionary safety & health solutions, and also provide a platform for safety practitioners to learn about new or innovative solutions in the industry.

WSH Asia said there will be a new category this year - Safety Influencer Award - dedicated to those who have had a positive effect on health and safety at work or in the region for the past 12 months. Votes will be obtained from the industry from 24 May to 29 June 2021.

Nine judges from the health and safety industry in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa will review the respective entries in each category. Applicants are eligible to submit up to three products or services. The launch of the new product(s) must be within 1 July 2020 and 30 June 2021. Deadline for entry submissions is Friday, 28 May 2021.

According to WSH Asia, there will be no fee required for applicants to ensure the non-commercialisation of the awards. The award ceremony will be funded through industry sponsorships.

Both the WSH Asia Awards and the Safety Influencer Awards winners are scheduled to be announced at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, on 29 July 2021.

WSH Asia is currently looking for official sponsors to make this event a success. The event will provide a venue for supporters to showcase their contribution to the occupational safety and health industry.

Sponsors of the 2021 WSH Asia Awards will also have the opportunity to address a targeted audience of safety and health, decision makers, opinion leaders, and influencers. As an awards partner, the company's logo will be featured on any element of pre-event publicity content, from conventional to digital, as well as on the day of the event.

WSH Asia is founded with the purpose of gathering safety and health information for the benefit of every individual. The organisation provides a platform - by curating safety & health solutions and information – that enables any individual to easily access safety and health solutions from around the world to keep them safe.
