Industrial Relations Minister Michael Wright has opened nominations for South Australia’s Safe Work Awards to recognise outstanding achievements in OHS.

The categories for this year are:

  • Best Workplace Health & Safety Management System
  • Best Solution to an Identified Workplace Health & Safety System
  • Best Workplace Health & Safety Practices in Small Business
  • Public Sector Leadership Award for Injury Prevention & Management
  • Employer of the Year
