SafeWork NSW has announced the finalists in its annual work health and safety awards.
The SafeWork NSW Awards recognise business and workers with the highest standards of workplace health and safety and return to work outcomes in the State.
The judges have selected 34 finalists across all categories, from some very impressive applications.
Finalists come from a range of industries and include many new safety innovations and inspirational recovery at work stories.
Minister for Better Regulation Matt Kean said the awards coincided with Safe Work Month.
“Every worker has the right to a safe and healthy workplace, regardless of your industry, occupation or background,” Mr. Kean said.
“These awards acknowledge the hard work of employees and businesses who are setting the health and safety standards that others can follow.
“As the Minister responsible for workplace safety, I’m proud to see such an impressive level of commitment from these finalists to employee wellbeing.”
Mr. Kean said Safe Work Month was an opportunity for business leaders and employees to look out for each other, and demonstrate their commitment to workplace safety.
“I challenge every worker in NSW to have a conversation with their manager, and shine a light on how important it is to stay safe at work,” Mr. Kean said.
The winners will be announced at a black-tie gala dinner ceremony on Thursday 25 October 2018, at The Star Event Centre, Pyrmont.
