VWS Sponsors Safety Award at Tip-Ex 15
February 2015

After a very successful show last year Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS) is returning to this year’s Tip-ex 15 exhibition and can be found on Stand C34 from 28-30 May at the Harrogate International Centre.  This year VWS is also sponsoring The Tipper Safety Award, the winner of which will be announced at a special awards ceremony as part of the show’s Gala Dinner on 29 May 2015 at Harrogate’s Majestic Hotel.

The No 1 vehicle weighing supplier for many local authorities and private contractors in the UK, VWS design and manufacture their own load cells and weighing systems here in the UK.  Julian Glasspole, Managing Director, VWS said: “Safety is a high priority for us as a company and we are confident that entries for this award will demonstrate the importance of proper health and safety practice for Tipper operators. We look forward to learning about safety initiatives in the sector.”

Entrants for the award will need to show either an exceptional commitment to all-round operational safety or describe a specific successful initiative designed to improve safety in a particular area of the operation. Judges will also want to see evidence of a company wide safety policy as well an analysis of the outcomes of a particular initiative after implementation.

The category is open to all tipper operators and the closing date for deadlines is 13 March 2015. It is free to enter and the shortlist will be announced on 16 April.  An entry form can be downloaded from http://vwsltd.co.uk/tipex2015/
