Have You Made A Difference To Workplace Safety?

Businesses that have made a significant contribution to health and safety and return to
work are encouraged to enter the 2014 WorkCover NSW Safe Work Awards.

Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott said the awards, now in their 11th year, opened in May, and this year it is easier than ever for businesses and individuals to highlight their workplace safety and injury management achievements.

“WorkCover’s annual SafeWork Awards recognise businesses and individuals that have made positive changes to work health and safety, and return to work,” Mr Elliott said.

“Entering is even easier in 2014 with a faster and simpler online application process.”

Member for Castle Hill Dominic Perrottet said that more than 50 awards have been issued from hundreds of entries in the decade since the program commenced and this year, entries are open to any business, individual or not-for-profit organisation registered in NSW.

“I encourage large and small businesses from the Hills to submit an entry and showcase their health and safety achievements or success in helping workers recover from injury.

“I am confident that local businesses from the Hills will be able to provide a cross-section of innovative and simple initiatives that have made a difference in helping workers to remain safe on the job,” he said.

Winners will be announced at the SafeWork Awards ceremony in Sydney on 30 October.

Entries are to be submitted online at safeworkawards.com.au and close at 5:00pm Friday 4 July.
