Call for entries to SA safety awards
SafeWork SA is calling for entries into the Safe Work Awards for 2006.
Organiser Jo Emms told Safety Solutions that this is the 14th year for the awards and that businesses should enter to receive "recognition of all their hard work in OHS".
This year's categories include employer of the year, employee of the year, best workplace health and safety management system and best public event safety.
SafeWork SA executive director, Michele Patterson said the awards highlight the positive achievements being made in health and safety. "There are workplaces where employers and their staff are striving together to make safety a part of their core business," she said.
The Safe Work Awards 2006 are also linked to the National Safe Work Australia Awards. Winners in the state categories will automatically be nominated for the national awards in those categories.
Last year the Hardy Wine Company took out the Safe Work Award for best workplace health and safety management system. The company then went on to win a national Safe Work Australia Award.
Nominations close on 8 September and the awards will be presented at a gala dinner on 3 November at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
Information on how each category will be judged, as well as advice on how to prepare a nomination, can be found at www.safework.sa.gov.au.
