Robert W. Campbell Award


The Robert W. Campbell Award

The international Robert W. Campbell Award honors companies that achieve business excellence through the integration of Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) management into business operations. Built upon rigorous scientific evaluation, the Campbell Award uses an evidence-based case study approach to serve as a catalyst toward transforming the landscape of EHS worldwide. To promote leading-edge integrated management systems, and to educate and influence leaders across national and cultural borders, exemplary Campbell Award submittals are shared with organizations and educational institutes through the award’s network of twenty-three Global Partner organizations.

The ultimate goal of the Campbell Award is to educate leaders about the intrinsic value of EHS to the triple bottom line through rigorous, evidence-based case studies.

The Campbell Award was developed by the National Safety Council and is underwritten by the ExxonMobil Corporation. The award is named after Robert W. Campbell, an early 20th century pioneer in the safety movement of the United States and the first president of the National Safety Council. Campbell recognized the humanitarian benefit of safety, but realized that there were also economic benefits of EHS. His belief that striking a balance between these two benefits would convince a larger audience of the importance of safety serves as the basis for the ideals of the Campbell Award.

To continue Campbell’s work, the Campbell Award seeks to collect and highlight the best examples of safety, health, and environmental management in successful business management worldwide.
