WHAT DO YOU NEED TO PREPARE FOR YOUR SAFEWORK AWARDS ENTRY?

Find a few images that best represent your entry. The images can show either examples of the changes the entry has made in your workplace or the things people have done to make improvements. (The images must be in jpg or eps format. Images embedded in Word or PDF documents will not be accepted.)

Prepare any video supporting footage. You will be able to add in a link to your YouTube or Vimeo video in the uploads section of the form.

Think about your entry. What did you do to improve work health and safety or return to work. How did you do it? What problems did it solve?
