WorkSafe Awards

Keeping everyone healthy and safe at work is WorkSafe’s priority, and we understand many businesses are going through a challenging time due to COVID-19.

With this and the current restrictions on large gatherings in mind, we have decided to cancel the WorkSafe Awards for 2020.

Celebrating the achievements of those who make Victoria’s workplaces safer, and who help injured workers return to work, is important to WorkSafe. The Awards will be back in 2021 with entries opening next March. We look forward to hearing everyone’s safety stories then.

For inspiration, you can check out the 2019 WorkSafe Award winners here. 

WorkSafe’s Health and Safety Month will go ahead in October 2020 with a format to be announced soon.
