Celebrating Health and Safety Excellence: Our Journey to the Australian Workplace Health & Safety Awards
Our team was filled with immense pride and gratitude as we were recognised in the Health and Safety Excellence (Small to Medium Enterprise) category at the Australian Workplace Health & Safety Awards 2022 Gala Dinner. Together with our project partners Tree Mason and Macedon Ranges Shire Council we were honoured for our collective effort to keep staff and contractors safe at the Storm Recovery Project Site.
This award was the result of a collaborative effort to establish and operate a project site that prioritises safety. Our team led by Phil Neville, worked diligently to guide the project team in implementing safe practices and procedures, ensuring that everyone involved remains safe throughout the duration of the project. This recognition reinforces our commitment to assisting our clients and partners to create safe and healthy working environments.
Our journey towards excellence in health and safety began at the outset of the project. We recognised the importance of creating a culture of safety that permeates through every aspect of our work. Our team worked closely with Tree Mason and Macedon Ranges Shire Council to identify potential hazards and develop comprehensive risk management plans. Regular safety training sessions were conducted to ensure that everyone involved in the project understood their roles and responsibilities in ensuring a safe work environment.
As we received the award, we were also reminded of the incredible outcomes this project has delivered to the community. It is a project that we are immensely proud to be involved in, and we are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to its success.
We would like to extend our congratulations to everyone involved in the project, including our partners, Tree Mason, Macedon Ranges Shire Council and Emergency Recovery Victoria. Their commitment to safety and excellence was instrumental in this recognition. We would also like to thank the AIHS for the honour.
As we continue our journey towards excellence in health and safety, we remain committed to creating safe and health working environments that enable our clients to thrive. We hope that our success will inspire others to prioritise safety and create cultures of excellence in their workplaces.
