Who can apply?

  • The award is for a ‘workplace’. This is defined as any identifiable place of work, and is not required to be the whole building.
  • The applicant can be landlord, tenant or owner occupier but must have responsibility for the management of their workplace.
  • The ability to successfully apply for the award is not dictated by the applicant’s resources or capacity. Equally the ability to access resources is taken into account when assessing your performance.
