The free to enter prize draws were run from 2006 through to 2012 and were a 'leg up' from HSfB and our fantastic prize draw contributors to anyone wishing either to enter, or further their career in the field of health and safety.
My personal motives, and the motives of HSfB as a whole, are quite simply a passion to keep workers free from accident, injury or ill-health whilst at work.
One of the greatest challenges for me starting out in health and safety was funding for the courses I wanted to go on. HSfB and all the fantastic prize contributions from organisations and other kind individuals has now put me in the fortunate position to help others get started, or to move onward and upwards.
The first free draw, launched on 5 November 2006, was a 'one off' draw where all entrants were placed 'in the hat' and winners were drawn by an impartial member of a renowned health, safety and environmental establishment (NEBOSH). The total value of the prizes given away for that prize draw was a fantastic £7,260!
The draw of 2006/2007 led to a certain amount of recognition for innovation and subsequently won two awards - HSfB Awards.
The third prize draw, launched on 3 November 2008, was the start of a long-term prize draw where each month at least one winner would benefit from the great prizes we had on offer.
