2018 Finalists announced

Entries to the 2018 SafeWork NSW Awards have now closed with 160 applications received across six categories state wide from Ballina to Merimbula, and over to Barham. The awards recognise businesses and workers with the highest standards of workplace health and safety and return to work outcomes in the State.

The judges have selected 34 finalists across all categories, from some very impressive applications. Finalists come from a range of industries and include many new safety innovations and inspirational recovery at work stories.

The awards provide a platform to showcase how innovation and forward thinking can contribute to improved safety and injury management. The finalists are setting the benchmark for other business and workers to aim for, demonstrating their commitment to a safe and healthy workplace.  Other businesses are encouraged to follow the finalist’s stories and think about to create a workplace safety culture as well.

The winners will be announced at a black-tie gala dinner ceremony on Thursday 25 October 2018, at The Star Event Centre, Pyrmont – tickets can be purchased now to this prestigious event.
