Whilst we haven’t been able to run the hugely popular International Safety Awards gala dinner over the last couple of years, we are looking at the feasibility of a 2022 event. However, we are very aware that even though many restrictions have been relaxed in the UK, this isn’t necessarily the situation elsewhere. We will ensure that winners receive further details as soon as we possibly can.
