Due to the ongoing situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and in keeping with further safety measures to help prevent the spread of the virus, the National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO) has made changes to its upcoming events calendar.

All Ireland Occupational Health & Safety Awards submissions will take place from July to September, and the deadlines for submissions have been extended: Early Bird Entries: 31 July; Standard Entries: 25 September.

There will be no late entry deadline so ensure submissions reach NISO or NISG on or before 25 September. Organisations that have availed of the early bird submission date will have the opportunity to have their submission returned by recorded delivery to allow for further improvements. Organisations that have made early bird payments should ensure they meet the 31 July deadline for submitting entries.

All Ireland Occupational Health & Safety Awards Presentation Ceremony has been deferred to Friday 22 January 2021, and returns to the Great Southern, Killarney, Co. Kerry. 

All Ireland Occupational Safety Quiz Finals will now take place on Saturday 17 October in the Tullamore Court Hotel in Offaly. NISO will also rearrange dates for the remaining regional heats in due course.

NISO’s National AGM is now scheduled for 30 July in the NISO Training Centre, Ballymount, Dublin 12. 

NISO’s Annual Health and Safety Conference, which normally takes place in October, has been cancelled this year.
