National Excellence in HSE Awards 2024




The National H.S.E. Awards has become the de facto opportunity for businesses to benchmark their health, safety, and environmental excellence.

AMCHAM T&T firmly believes that these awards not only highlight excellent performance in H.S.E. but also encourage companies to implement and uphold the highest standards of H.S.E. management and practice while always striving for continuous improvement and excellence.

These Awards are intended to promote the implementation of best practice H.S.E. Management Systems, which embody the classical model for continual improvement through the ‘Plan–Do–Check–Act’ cycle.

This year we intend to have four (4) award categories:
• Excellence in H.S.E. Award
• H.S.E. Evolution Award
• Outstanding H.S.E. Project
• Towards Operational Resiliency 

Applicants must submit an initial screening form for review by the judges. Upon approval, applicants would then be invited to submit a presentation and supporting documents for the final stage of judging.

Major disruptive events such as the COVID-19 pandemic have clearly underscored the business value of operational resilience in their organizational DNA. Operational Resilience is now key to business survival in the face of rapidly changing environments and threats. Leveraging aspects of both business continuity and operational resilience enables organizations to mitigate risks more effectively, recover critical functionality, and thrive in altered circumstances. To build a safe, enduring business, companies need both continuity and resilience.

Building Operational Resilience - Considerations for Evaluation

The Award will consider the state of preparation to respond to a disruption and the state of enhanced resilience through business continuity management processes as defined by ISO 22301:2019. It will evaluate the road map to enhancing resilience within an established business continuity management framework. The thrust is preparing for crises/disruptions by enhancing resilience as defined by ISO standards and adopting business continuity management disciplines. The Award would seek to stimulate and enhance resilience by focusing on the ability to respond and adapt, within the corporate culture.

Key principles for building an Operational Resilience Framework:

1.      Define Key Business Services / Critical Economic Functions (CEFs);

2.      Set Impact Tolerance and Risk Metrics.

3.      Understand Dependencies - Upstream and Downstream.

4.      Leverage Scenarios for Potential Points of Failure.

5.      Communicate the Plan and Stakeholder Map.

6.      Drive resilience across the extended third-party ecosystem. 

7.      Build resilience into the organization’s culture, both internally and across the extended third-party ecosystem.
