Mike Nixon with the Maurice Adamson AwardIn recognition for his work with the Safety Groups UK network for national safety associations and our friends at the Manchester Occupational Health and Safety Group (MOHSG) the Maurice Adamson Award 2012 was awarded to our good friend and colleague Mike Nixon at the Alan Butler Awards 2012. The award ceremony was held during the annual Safety Groups UK luncheon at the House of Lords on Monday, 21 January 2013, where we were also delighted to be awarded a Alan Butler Gold Award.

Roger Bibbings, Occupational Safety Adviser for RoSPA and Secretary of SafetyGroupsUK, on announcing the award said:

He [Mike Nixon] has been a member of the Manchester Group for more than 20 years and its treasurer since 1995. He was nominated by them for always being at the forefront of organising events, supporting fellow members and trying to obtain the best investments to maximise funds.

His recent achievement was to set up the NEBOSH Scholarship Awards for his Group to improve standards of health, safety and welfare within a workplace. It allows a candidate from a small company or a self-funded individual to receive ultimately free training for the award of the NEBOSH National General Certificate or the NEBOSH Construction Certificate.

Andrew Hicks, son of the last Maurice Adamson award winner Gordon Hicks, passes the honour on to Mike Nixon of Manchester Occupational Health and Safety GroupWe, the SOHSA committee, would like to pass on our congratulations and thanks to Mike and Cathy for this well-earned accolade on behalf of SOHSA, his own (Manchester) group and the wider Safety Groups UK network. 

Mark Wait, Chairman of SOHSA, commented:

Mike works tirelessly in the background as Treasurer for Safety Groups UK and attends all the conferences and exhibitions on our behalf - drumming up support for all of the Safety Groups in the UK.

Without Mike and Cathy’s [Nixon] hard work Safety Groups UK would not have the recognition, image and visual impact that it has today.
