SafeWork NSW today announced the finalists in the 2016 NSW SafeWork Awards.

SafeWork NSW Executive Director, Peter Dunphy, said 20 businesses across NSW were selected from a pool of 125 entrants across six categories for outstanding achievements in work health and safety.

The Awards also recognise workers who have recovered and returned to employment after a workplace injury and many entrants showcased their return-to- work programs that have delivered mutual benefits for the injured worker and wider business.

“All of the entrants were of a high calibre and it is encouraging to see the significant inroads made to reducing risks and injuries in individual workplaces,” Mr Dunphy said.

The 2016 finalists represent small and large businesses from a range of industries including construction, health, communications and administration.

“I commend all of the finalists and entrants for their outstanding contribution to improving safety to reduce injuries to help ensure every worker comes home safely at the end of the working day,” Mr Dunphy said.

The finalists have the opportunity to become ambassadors for workplace safety and return-to-work among their industry peers.

Winners will be announced at an Awards ceremony and dinner on October 27 at Doltone House Hyde Park.
