Vic safety award finalists revealed
The 27 finalists for the 2018 WorkSafe Awards have now been announced.
Organisations that feature on the shortlist include Melbourne Water, St John of God Berwick Hospital, Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries, Darebin City Council, City of Boroondara, Ecogroup and McConnell Dowell Constructors.
The prestigious awards recognise the outstanding contributions individuals and organisations have made to improve workplace health and safety and help injured workers return to work.
They also celebrate the dedication of injured workers who have overcome significant challenges to return to the workforce.
More than 170 entries from a variety of industries nominated for the awards.
WorkSafe Victoria Chief Executive Clare Amies said each finalist deserved recognition for their hard work and dedication to improving health and safety outcomes for workers and, in the case of injured workers themselves, their courage and perseverance to overcome obstacles and return to work.
“These determined businesses and individuals have in common a passionate approach to preventing workplaces injuries and illnesses and doing what they can to help others — or themselves — return to safe work after injury,” Amies said.
“Our finalists have set a strong example for the community when it comes to workplace health and safety, and they deserve to be recognised.
“It is satisfying to see such a wide variety of industries represented and all the finalists should be commended for their commitment.”
Winners will be announced at a gala dinner at Crown Palladium on Thursday, 18 October.
