“If you know an individual or organisation that’s helping to create safer workplaces and help get injured workers back on the job, we want to hear from you,” Ms Grace said.
“Queensland often leads the rest of Australia when it comes to initiatives in work safety and rehabilitation and I want to that proud record to continue.
“Queensland WorkplaceSafety Ambassador Shane Webcke, who lost his dad in a workplace incident, will be part of a gala awards ceremony on 18 October that gives finalists achance to win up to $2000 in prize money.”
Ms Grace said this year’s awards would feature updated and improved award categories to make it easier for businesses and individuals to enter.
“There’s a simpler nomination process which aims to entice more small and medium sized businesses to apply because the grassroots level is where many of the leading health safety innovations started,” Ms Grace said.
