Established in 2004 and supported by a network of Global Partners across five continents, the international Robert W. Campbell Award recognizes organizations that achieve excellence through the integration of environmental, health and safety management into business operations. The Campbell Award aims to foster the sharing of leading-edge EHS management and best practices worldwide; learn more about the mission and goals.

The Campbell Award is named after the first President of the National Safety Council (NSC), a noted safety pioneer who believed that the success of the safety movement would depend on educating engineers, top executives and the general public on the business benefits of EHS.
