The finalists from around the state have been shortlisted across nine categories for their outstanding efforts in improving workplace health and safety and supporting injured workers to return to work.
This year’s awards attracted 219 nominations, the highest number since 2013.
A wide variety of industries are represented at the awards, including the construction, transport, retail, local government and health sectors.
WorkSafe Chief Executive Clare Amies said every finalist deserved to be recognised for their dedication.
"The WorkSafe Awards highlight the amazing things people do every day to make the lives of workers better, whether it’s through improving health and safety, or helping injured workers return to work," Ms Amies said.
"Another inspiring group of finalists are injured workers who have returned to work themselves. These finalists have overcome challenging obstacles, demonstrating great perseverance and courage along the way.
"Given the number of nominations this year, finalists should feel proud to be shortlisted and have their commitment to both workplace safety and getting back to work after injury celebrated."
The winners will be announced at the WorkSafe Awards Dinner at Melbourne Town Hall on October 31.
