Returning for its second edition, EGYPS HSE Excellence in Energy Awards are looking to recognise outstanding and impactful HSE projects, as well as exceptional individuals working within the HSE field in Egypt, North Africa and/or the Mediterranean across all parts of the oil and gas value chain.

The awards are open to national and international oil and gas companies, EPC contractors, service providers, OEMs, technology and solution providers or any other companies that have had a significant impact in the HSE field in Egypt, Africa and/or the Mediterranean.

The EGYPS HSE Excellence in Energy Awards are led by a high-level Regional Select Jury that will review and grade all entries through an unbiased two-stage evaluation process. After the first round of online evaluations, the Jury will select six shortlisted nominations for each category that will be invited for face-to-face interviews. After the interviews are completed, the Jury will make the final round of evaluations to select finalists and winners for each category.

This category is looking to recognise the best health and safety project of the year that has had a substantial impact in Egypt, North Africa and/or the Mediterranean.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
  • Nominations to be submitted by a company representative
  • Any company can submit multiple entries
  • This is a yearly award, so the submitted project must have been completed within 2018-2019
  • The Jury will only consider projects that have already been completed (i.e. not ideas or suggestions)
  • All entries should be submitted in written English. Any entry submitted in a different language will not be considered
  • Please do not submit the same entry more than once. If an entry is submitted multiple times, the most recent entry will be considered with previous entries being deleted
  • There are no fees to submit entries
Evaluation criteria

  • Measureable impact (50%)

Please explain what health and safety impact your project has had. For example, reduced number of safety related incidents, achieving zero fatality, reduced number of dangerous man-hours etc. Try to quantify the impact as much as possible, the more numbers you include the better. Also, make sure the information provided clearly explains the situation before and after project implementation. Please note that improved financial indicators (e.g. reduced costs) are secondary here, although you are of course welcome to include them too.

  • Quality of the delivery (20%)

Was the project completed on time and within budget? Did the project deliverables match or exceed the initial objectives? Please describe the challenges that were faced and how they were dealt with. What lessons were learned to improve the management of future projects?

  • Innovation (20%)

Your entry should explain why their project is original and innovative. For example, implemented technology has never been used for HSE purposes previously or it is the first time this kind of project has been implemented in the country/region/globally. Please note that innovation does not necessarily imply something completely new, for example, if a project has been replicated from another region for the first time, this certainly counts as being innovative.

  • Transferability (10%)

How easy is it to replicate your project and apply it at other locations locally or globally? Does it have a potential to become industry best practise?

Supporting documentation

  • MANDATORY. The entries have to be in a PowerPoint presentation format, and should cover project overview, an explanation of how the submitted project meets each of the four criteria, plus a short summary of why they believe their project should win this award. The presentation should not be longer than 20 slides, entries that exceed the maximum number of slides will be rejected
  • The PowerPoint template is available, please download it here
  • OPTIONAL. In addition, you are welcome to submit the following:
    •  Recommendation letters from business stakeholders, and/or clients supporting the success of company’s HSE project/initiative
    •  Publication editorials highlighting the company’s HSE project
    •  Evidence of other industry awards/recognition received, if any
  • All supporting evidence should be from 2018-2019
