Could you win a prestigious BOHS Award?

Our awards are a shining demonstration of our – and your – commitment to occupational hygiene and worker health.

The BOHS Awards Committee consists of a representative selection of BOHS members, who carefully review each submission before coming to a decision. The Board then endorses the award-winning submissions. Awards are presented at the Gala Dinner of the BOHS Annual Occupational Hygiene Conference.

Check the eligibility requirements to find an award that matches your profile. We welcome all applications, so don’t be shy!
