NISO has developed a strong reputation for organising premier health and safety events including the All Ireland Safety Awards, the Annual Safety Conference, seminars and workshops, often in collaboration with other organisations such as the HSA. NISO events help to promote a safety culture and to raise safety awareness in Irish workplaces.

  • Held in early October every year, the changing themes reflect current industry issues and attract speakers of international renown;
  • It is hosted by the regional committee in prestigious venues around the country.

The All Ireland Safety Awards

Run in conjunction with Northern Ireland Safety Group (NISG), the Safety Awards recognise how organisations manage health and safety at work.

  • Organisations send their paper-based submissions to be reviewed by health and safety professionals during spring time;
  • The winners are notified in late August or early September what class of award they have achieved;
  • The winners are invited to attend the Awards Ceremony Dinner which is typically held in early October;
  • The list of winners is published, after the event, in several respected publications such as The Health and Safety Review and the Sunday Business Post as well as on the NISO website and NISO Update magazine.
