Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards nominations open

Nominations have opened for the 2023 Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards in Western Australia.

WorkSafe Commissioner Darren Kavanagh said that the awards recognise outstanding solutions and innovations in health and safety across all workplaces.

“This is a terrific opportunity for WA businesses of all sizes to show off their workplace health and safety initiatives and to receive some well-deserved recognition,” he said.

“I encourage companies and individuals to consider nominating for the awards and taking advantage of the opportunity to have their health and safety achievements publicly recognised.”

This year’s award categories are:

  • Work health and safety invention of the year
  • Best solution to a work health and safety risk
  • Best intervention to address a psychosocial hazard in the workplace
  • Leadership Excellence Award
  • Health and Safety Representative of the Year

There are two awards in each category — one for small business (199 employees or fewer) and one for large business (200 employees or more) — to ensure that all sizes of business have an equal opportunity to win an award.

Nominations close on 30 May, and winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in October during Safe Work Month.
