Design4Safety Awards at IMHX 2016

IMHX 2016 will once again host the Design4Safety awards, organised by the British Industrial Truck Association (BITA), co-owners of the event.

The aim of the awards is to highlight the importance of product or service design in improving safety standards. By focusing on ‘design for safety’ the awards recognise innovative thinking, regardless of the type or cost of the product or service.

All IMHX exhibitors can enter the awards, which provide the opportunity to highlight the crucial safety benefits of their individual products and services, and there are six different categories which encompass the whole materials handling industry.

These are:

  • Industrial Vehicles
  • Automation
  • Goods-in/Goods-out
  • Racking & Storage
  • Technology
  • Warehouse infrastructure

Entries should include:

  • 150 word explanation of how the product or service improves safety or eliminates a previously unsafe approach
  • High-resolution image (JPEG or GIF, up to 2MB)
  • One additional supporting document and links to online images or video that support the entry.

Products or services don’t have to be newly launched, but must be available at the time of entry and for at least six months after the awards are announced.

Winning entries will be those which provide the strongest evidence of a measurable contribution to the level of safety awareness, or rate of incident reduction, achieved by the design.


Full terms and conditions can be found here.

The winners will be announced on Thursday 15th September at the SHD Logistics Awards ceremony.
