“Nominations for the annual awards are now open and, given this year’s unique circumstances, will focus on businesses who have best responded to the significant challenges posed by COVID-19 pandemic in the workplace,” Mr Elliott said.
“It’s not been an easy year for our local businesses, and this year’s awards are a great opportunity to say thank you to the Baulkham Hills employers who have gone above and beyond to adapt their working methods and keep our community safe.
“I encourage everyone in Baulkham Hills to visit the SafeWork website and nominate one of our local businesses for their fantastic efforts over the last few months.”
