The Hazardex awards programme has long been a benchmark for those supplying products, services and systems within hazardous areas. The awards offer Hazardex readers the ability to play their part in raising awareness and standards across the sector by nominating a company, product or service, entering their vote, and encouraging colleagues to do likewise.

The Awards are presented following an informal, very well attended Gala Dinner in the evening of the event's first day where delegates, speakers, and exhibitors network over a three-course meal and drinks. The annual Hazardex International Conference and Exhibition is widely recognised as the most important global event specific to hazardous area operations across all major industries. Together with the Conference and Exhibition, the Gala Dinner and Awards for Excellence aim to strengthen and expand the community that looks to the Hazardex website and journal for industry intelligence and information.

In 2021, 20 companies were nominated across four categories with an additional category, the Delegates’ Award, being voted on by delegates and attendees at the Hazardex 2021 Conference and Exhibition, to identify which of the nominated entries provides the overall best hazardous area sector product, system or service.

You can play your part in raising awareness and standards across the sector by nominating a company, product or service for the next awards, entering your vote and encouraging your colleagues to do likewise.

The next Hazardex Awards for Excellence will take place at our 21st birthday event – Hazardex Live! – on 1 & 2 March 2023.
