Saiosh Awards 2016



The 2016 Saiosh awards were made at the 6th Saiosh National OHS Conference held at Gallagher Estate on 24 May 2016. Just over 250 delegates attended the conference which was held alongside the A-OSH exhibition. Delegates were treated to a varied programme from 11 speakers. The speakers included the President of IOSH from the UK and a presenter from the Saudi Electric Company in Saudi Arabia.

The conference was sponsored by IOSH UK as the Lead Sponsor, UVEX SA as the GOLD Sponsor and NOSA who sponsored the Cocktail Function where the awards were made.In acknowledging achievements in two OHS fields, namely the Saiosh Top Student of the Year and the Saiosh Person of the Year, the Saiosh Council decided to go one step further. That step is to recognise a person who has contributed to the Occupational Health and Safety field over many years. For that purpose Saiosh decided to establish a Wall of Fame.The first nominee was considered by Council, without the nominee being aware of the process. The nominee was the Saiosh President, Robin Jones.
