Recipients of the annual Augusta Zadow Awards have been announced during the awards presented by His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia recently.
The Augusta Zadow Awards celebrate the achievements of August Zadow, an advocate for women’s rights in the workplace, by providing the opportunity to further improve the lives of women working in South Australia. Every year, SafeWork SA funds projects that will improve the work health and safety of working women. This year, the scope was expanded to include young workers too. SafeWork received a record 25 applications.
The recipients will share in the $45,000 funding.
“We received an incredible response to the Awards this year and are pleased to be able to fund such innovative and thoughtful projects to help women and young people in the workplace,” said Glenn Farrell, Director Workplace Education & Business Services.
“Women and young workers work in a diverse range of workplaces and can have unique health and safety issues. This year’s award recipients recognise those challenges and have developed practical hands-on projects.
“I congratulate all of the winners and look forward to seeing their projects completed and put to use in helping to improve the work health and safety of working women and young workers.”
The list of recipients is available on SafeWork SA’s website.
