BPCA to host inaugural British Pest Management Awards

BPCA will host the very first industry-wide British Pest Management Awards which recognise excellence in the UK Pest Management Sector.

The British Pest Management Awards (BPMA's) acknowledge the difference individuals and companies can make to portray a positive image of the pest management industry in terms of public health, food safety, environmental sustainability and economic significance.

Open to all pest management professionals operating in the UK, the awards ceremony will take place at BPCA’s 75th Anniversary dinner at the o2 Arena’s Brooklyn Bowl, on the 22nd March following day one of PestEx 2017.

Said Kevin Higgins, Chairman of the BPMA judging panel,

“The BPMA’s are a fantastic initiative for the whole pest control community to come together and recognise excellence.”

The free to enter BPM awards boast the following categories:

Del Norton Award
Outstanding contribution to the fumigation sector

Charles Keeble Award
Outstanding commitment and performance in training and development

Unsung Hero Award
Outstanding support to the pest management industry

Lifetime Achievement Award
Outstanding contribution to the pest management industry

Technician of the Year Award
Outstanding performance as a pest management professional

Company of the Year Award

In order to maintain independence, organisations are limited to one nomination per category and all references to company names will be redacted throughout the shortlisting and judging process.

Representatives from the Pest Management sector’s key stakeholder groups such as BPCA, NPTA, CIEH, industry media and an independent representative for training and development will identify winning and highly commended entries as the award's judging panel.

The deadline for BPMA nominations is 5 pm on Wednesday 14 December, after which entries will be shortlisted against criteria set out at www.bpca.org.uk/awards.
