35th Houston safety excellence awards

The Nomination Process Begins Now!

The Houston Business Roundtable is excited to announce that the Houston Safety Excellence Awards are back!

The Houston Business Roundtable and the Health and Safety Council partner together annually to recognize the contract companies and their partners in the Greater Houston Area for outstanding safety performance through HBR’s audit process and the banquet co-hosted with HASC.

2022 is the 35th anniversary of the awards that brings together chemical, refining, and energy companies on the Gulf Coast in a cooperative and collaborative effort with contract companies to improve on-site safety, reduce accidents, and, most importantly, reduce injuries to personnel.

HBR and HASC believe that the contract companies involved in this award process continue to develop and improve their safety processes year over year, creating world-class safety programs better than any other group of contractors in the world.

After canceling the audit season and Houston Safety Excellence Awards banquet for the past two years in order to be cautious of COVID-19 and its impact, we are glad to once again have you all participate in this elite process. Throughout this year’s Houston Safety Excellence Awards process, we will continue to keep health and safety at the forefront of our priorities. HBR is committed to continuing to revise the process in order to ensure the safety of all individuals involved while maintaining the quality and integrity of the safety audits.

We are now issuing the CALL FOR NOMINATIONS for the 35th annual Houston Safety Excellence Awards.

The deadline to nominate is January 5th.

Call for Volunteer Auditors

The Houston Safety Excellence Awards process has brought colleagues in the Greater Houston and Gulf Coast Area together in a cooperative and collaborative way to evaluate and celebrate successes. The nearly 250 association volunteers, made up of Team Leaders, auditors, and the companies being audited, come together to share best practices that improve workers' health and safety within our industry. The process is all about innovation through collaboration, working together to improve our industry, and keeping people safe.

If your company is an HBR Member or Partner and you would like to volunteer to be an auditor, please use the following link to register.

The deadline to register as a Volunteer Auditor is February 19th.

Safety Excellence Awards Update

With 2020 behind us and many factors still uncertain for 2021 related to COVID-19, we have chosen to cancel the Houston Business Roundtable (HBR) Safety Excellence Awards process and Houston Safety Excellence Award events for 2021. This decision was not made lightly or without consideration of alternative solutions. In the end, we want to ensure that the 35 years spent building this unique and impactful process remain uncompromised.
