Winners of the 2012 National Safety Awards of Excellence were announced in a ceremony held this month at Doltone House in Sydney.
This year’s awards saw the introduction of a new category – Best Workplace Health and Wellbeing Program. With 140 submissions this year, the National Safety Awards of Excellence honours the dedication and hard work of safety heroes within organisations that have achieved excellence in their respective field of work.
“The record number of submissions this year is a true statement to Australian organisations pushing the boundaries of standard WHS&E regulations by ensuring all workers return home safely each day and that Australian levels of safety are seen as a goal for the rest of the world,” says NSCA CEO, Adam Baldock.
