Nominations for the new Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards are now open.
The Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards is an amalgamation and replacement of the Safety and Health Resources Sector Awards and the Work Safety Awards.
The Awards recognise outstanding solutions and innovations to specific workplace health and safety problems in Western Australia.
There are two awards in each category for small and large businesses.
The categories include:
- Work health and safety invention of the year;
- Best solution to a work health and safety risk;
- Best workplace health and wellbeing initiative;
- Leadership Excellence Award; and
- Safety and Health Representative of the Year.
“The Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards will recognise outstanding solutions and innovations in health and safety across all WA workplaces, both large and small,” Mines and Petroleum and Industrial Relations Minister Bill Johnston said.
“The previous awards celebrated achievements across all industry sectors, and the combined awards will continue that tradition and expand the potential for the innovations and solutions to be applied across WA workplaces.
“Workplace safety is very important for the McGowan Government, so I encourage companies and individuals to consider nominating for the awards and taking advantage of the opportunity to have their safety achievements publicly recognised.”
Nominations close on June 7, 2019 and winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in October.
