WESTERN Plains Security and Locksmiths Dubbo was announced as a finalist in the 2014 WorkCover NSW Safe Work Awards.
They are one of three businesses in the running for the Best workplace health and safety practices in small business award.
Vivek Bhatia WorkCover NSW Chief Executive Officer said this year’s awards have received the highest number of entries since its formation in 2004.
“The annual awards, now in its 11th year, recognises businesses and individuals and making positive changes to work health and safety, workers compensation, and return to work,” he said.
“This year’s finalists were from a range of industries and included safety innovations such as automated tie-down straps, web and mobile risk management applications, and simple and effective solutions for monitoring a vehicle’s risk of rolling.”
Mr Bhatia said the participating businesses should be applauded for their efforts: “These finalists will become safety ambassadors and raise the bar for workplace health and safety among their industry peers.”
The 26 finalists were selected from 176 entries across the state – a number that Mr Bhatia said is encouraging for workplace safety practices.
“The volume of entries received this year reflects that more and more workplaces are encouraging everyone to accept responsibility for their own health and safety as well as their colleagues,” he said.
The finalists will be judged by a panel consisting of representatives from WorkCover, employers and workers and the awards will be presented at the end of the month.
