CIEH has announced details of its revamped environmental health awards.

The CIEH Excellence Awards are now open for entries and winners will be announced at a prestigious ceremony in London on 2 November 

The awards aim to celebrate the vital contribution made by environmental health professionals in protecting health, safety and wellbeing.  Entries are welcomed from individuals and organisations across the public, private and third sectors.

The awards will include seven categories and submissions will be judged by a panel of experts from different environmental health settings.

Judges will be looking for entries that clearly demonstrate how individuals and teams have improved public health and wellbeing, reduced health inequalities, improved public protection or promoted sustainability. 

Anne Godfrey, CIEH’s chief executive, said that the awards are an opportunity to gain recognition from a leading professional body which has more than 130 years of history. 

She commented: ‘Every day, environmental health professionals make a telling contribution to environmental and public health, whether that’s inspecting a restaurant to ensure food hygiene standards, or implementing health and safety policies for a large construction firm.

‘These awards will shine a light on individuals and organisations who are leading the way, recognising their creativity, passion and dedication. We look forward to receiving creative and vibrant submissions’

Entries and nominations are expected to showcase the breadth of work being carried out by environmental health professionals and services across all employment sectors in the UK. Specific consideration will be given to improving public health and wellbeing, reducing health inequality, improving public protection and promoting sustainability. The categories are as follows:
