Nominations open for 2024 WorkSafe Awards

Nominations have opened for the 2024 WorkSafe Awards, with Victorian businesses and individuals who are leading the way in enhancing workplace health and safety encouraged to share their stories. Now in their 35th year, the awards celebrate and honour the achievements of those who have made a significant contribution to reducing workplace harm and improving outcomes for injured workers. The awards also encourage workplaces to adopt best practices and cultivate a culture where safety is paramount. This includes the work of Victoria’s health and safety representatives (HSRs), which will be highlighted in the Health and Safety Representative of the Year category.

Nominations for the 2024 awards are open to all Victorian-based employers and workers; entrants can nominate themselves or another person. WorkSafe Chief Executive Officer Joe Calafiore said is it important to celebrate and reward the efforts of businesses and individuals who are excelling at keeping Victorian workers safe.

“The WorkSafe Awards represent a legacy of commitment to workplace health and safety and I would encourage individuals and businesses large and small to nominate. We honour those who have gone above and beyond, setting standards and championing a culture of safety that ensures workers return home safely every day,” Calafiore said.

A range of employers were recognised last year, with emergency services, local councils and aged care providers amongst the 16 finalists from more than 100 nominations received across the award categories. The nominations will close on Friday, 21 June, with winners to be announced early next year. The categories for the 2024 WorkSafe Awards are:

  • Commitment to Prevention of Mental Injury in the Workplace
  • Farm Safety Solution
  • Health and Safety Representative of the Year
  • Leading Return to Work Practice
  • OHS Leadership/Achievement
  • Worker Return to Work Achievement Award
  • Workplace Health and Safety Solution of the Year
