FAQs – Celebrating the Success
How do I collect or receive my Award?
A Safety Awards Presentation Ceremony Dinner is normally held at the end of September / start of October and successful companies are invited to attend to collect their awards. Where possible, every effort is made to secure the attendance of the relevant Minister with responsibility for Occupational Health and Safety. The event is also an enjoyable social event. As this is the 50th Anniversary of NISO, we expect to have some special guests at the conference / awards ceremony.
I have never been to the Awards Ceremony and I am not sure whether I should attend?
We cater for all groups and individuals at the Awards ceremony dinner. Some of the bookings are large with perhaps one or two tables booked. On other occasions, individual bookings are made by ladies and gentlemen. Irrespective of the type of booking, we will ensure that we seat all guests appropriately. For instance, we normally sit persons from the same organisation together and we aim to sit individuals at mixed tables bearing in mind gender and numbers attending.
Can I request to sit with someone from another organisation?
What is the dress code for the Awards Presentation Dinner?
Men, normally: dress suit / smart casual. Ladies, normally: cocktail dresses / smart casual. Please check with NISO for its dress code for the 2013 Annual Awards Ceremony and 50th Anniversary Post Conference Dinner.
Who arranges Accommodation Bookings?
While bookings for the Awards dinner are made through NISO, accommodation bookings are normally made directly with the hotel or venue quoting NISO to obtain the best rates.
No representative of my organisation is available to attend the Awards Ceremony dinner? How do I collect my Award?
Most organisations make every attempt to have a representative attend as it is a national event with Ministerial recognition. Many organisations use the opportunity to thank their committee members, employees, etc., for their contribution to health and safety within their organisations over the last year. If it not possible to attend, you should contact NISO to convey this message and also to make arrangements to collect your award from NISO/NISG after the Safety Awards Ceremony.
What are the photographic arrangements?
NISO/NISG will provide a photographer who will be present on the night and take photographs of each nominated person collecting their award on behalf of their organisation. There will also be opportunities for photographs to be taken of organisational representatives in groups. Requests for these photographs can be made through NISO. A charge may apply.
