IOSH Rail Awards

This year we have seen many changes brought about by COVID 19. Some of the changes we make are results of much discussion and consideration. One such change is our decision to cancel the annual IOSH International Rail Safety awards. This decision has been brought about by several factors, not just the inability to meet face to face. All countries have been affected at slightly different times, some organisations are desperately trying to re-launch its business and some have many workers displaced or working remotely. This being so we hope things will start to settle next year when we will re-launch the awards in 2021. For anyone who had considered placing an entry please hold this until next year and your entry will very much be welcome then
