CIEH Awards open for nominations
Applications for the CIEH Awards are now being accepted and the CIEH is urging people to nominate any professional who has excelled in the field of environmental health.
The lucky winners will be presented with their awards on 11 July at a ceremony held in the House of Lords.
The annual CIEH Awards recognise and celebrate good practice in environmental health, with the CIEH rewarding those professionals whose actions have resulted in improving people’s health and wellbeing.
This year the CIEH is accepting nominations for three categories: Professional of the Year, Organisation of the Year and the Outstanding Achievement Award.
And for the first time, anyone is free to nominate or be nominated in these categories, whether you work in the private or public sector.
The awards are free to enter and final nominations will be judged by an experienced panel of experts including CIEH Chief Executive, Anne Godfrey, CIEH President, Tim Everett, Ellie Greenwood, Senior Advisor, Local Government Association, and Peter Mather, Regional Safety Business Partner, Sainsbury’s.
The criteria for the judges covers a wide range of achievements, such as making a significant improvement to health or wellbeing, helping a business to succeed whilst achieving high regulatory standards or impeding a criminal activity.
At the awards ceremony, the CIEH will also be presenting awards for Student of the Year, Graduate of the Year and Military Environmental Health Practitioner of the Year.
