Safety Innovation Award

The Safety Innovation Award was held for the first time in 2019.  This award allows HVIA members to either nominate a safety product, safety feature or safety system that has been brought to market or implemented to make your product(s) or workplace safer.

So this award is open to both – an in house solution which is making your workplace safer or a new product, technology, or piece of equipment which is making your product range safer for your customers or the heavy vehicle industry.

As this is an Innovation Award, the bulk of the scoring is for originality, so be mindful to address how innovative the solution is in the heavy vehicle industry, also remember to tell us how it works, the process involved and how effective it has been. 

When addressing effectiveness – the more information, statistics you can provide the better.

It has to be operational to be eligible for nomination and the judges love to see pictures/video to help them understand.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

The Safety Innovation Award is an employer nominated award. To meet the Award criteria, the nominee must:

  • Be a financial HVIA member company up to date with members dues;
  • Wholly owned branches and subsidiary companies of the HVIA primary member can nominate;
  • Must be able to highlight how the nomination is innovative;
  • Must be able to demonstrate that it has been implemented in the past two years or is currently in use;
  • The innovation must have resulted in a positive change that can be demonstrated through the judging criteria; and
  • The nomination must be signed off by a senior manager of the Member company.

  • How transferable is the safety solution to other branches of the business?
  • What level of consultation or engagement (internal or external i.e. staff, customers, suppliers) was undertaken to implement the safety solution?
  • How effective has the safety solution been?

Important: Nominees are encouraged to accompany their submission with a video, photos or other supporting material, which assists in answering the above questions to assist the judging panel.
