The annual SafeWork NSW Awards recognise businesses and individuals that have made positive changes to workplace health and safety, recovery and return to work.
The 2015 SafeWork NSW Awards were announced at a ceremony on 28 October – congratulations to all of our winners.
A total of nine awards were presented across seven categories from a pool of 25 finalists. This year's winners were from a range of industries including construction, local government, aged care, banking and retail.
A common theme across entries was a focus on new product development and the smart use of technology to reduce risks and resolve safety issues. The Awards also highlighted the impact a workplace injury has on an individual and colleagues and the importance of innovative return to work initiatives.
