National Excellence in HSE Awards 2016
Recognizing Business Success through Excellence in Health, Safety and Environmental Management
BACKGROUND & RATIONALE:
The American Chamber of Commerce of Trinidad and Tobago (AMCHAM T&T) represents circa 300 private sector companies, 25% multinational and 75% national, operating in Trinidad and Tobago. AMCHAM T&T’s member companies represent over 90% of the foreign direct investment coming into Trinidad and Tobago. In our twenty-four (24) year history we have become the preferred point of private sector representation for local, US and multinational companies.
At AMCHAM T&T we subscribe to the view that excellence in occupational health, safety and environmental (HSE) management is integral to sustained business success. We encourage our member companies and the wider business community to implement and uphold the highest standards of HSE management and practice, striving for continuous improvement and excellence at all times.
The Ministry of Labour and Small and Micro Enterprise Development (MOLSMED) also recognizes the importance of occupational health and safety and environmental stewardship as values to be embraced. In this regard, the Occupational Safety and Health Authority (OSHA) held the National Safety Awards from 2007 to 2010. Based on the shared commitments to promoting these values the MOLSMED and AMCHAM T&T are collaborating to hold the 2016 National Excellence in HSE Awards to recognize excellent performance and other outstanding achievements in Health, Safety, and Environmental Management within the business community
