Safe Work Awards announced
The 2007 national Safe Work Australia Awards were presented to the winners in an evening ceremony held at Parliament House on Wednesday 28 April 2008.
The awards were presented by the Australian Safety and Compensation Council (ASCC) chairman, Mr Bill Scales and the Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations, Julia Gillard.
Thirty finalists from across Australia competed for this year’s awards, covering a broad range of industry types from both the public and the private sector.
“The Safe Work Australia Awards provide recognition to Australia’s OHS champions who are committed to making Australian workplaces safer,” said Scales.
“I would like to extend my sincere congratulations and thanks to all the finalists. All displayed outstanding dedication to improving safety in the workplace; this should be applauded.”
Finalists for each of the five award categories were winners of OHS awards in their state or territory jurisdiction. An independent judging panel considered each finalist’s award submission before deciding on a final winner.
Scales said the judging panel was very impressed with the finalists’ dedication and commitment to workplace safety and their innovative and hands-on approach.
The award winners can be viewed at the ASCC website.
