Worksafe have extended the deadline for nominations for their 2022 Awards until 5PM this Friday the 22nd of July!  

There are 7 award categories in all, including, of course, Health and Safety Representative of the year, the category which acknowledges HSRs who have represented their DWG in an outstanding manner. 

It is, in our view, the most important and prestigious award, and was won last year by United Workers Union members and HSRs Adrian Lidsey and Christopher Ball for their outstanding achievement in addressing the issue of indoor smoking areas at Crown Melbourne.

Entries now close on 22 July 2022, so don't delay if you’d like to nominate a HSR, or HSRs, at your workplace. Find more information here.
