Central Coast residents are being encouraged to nominate local businesses for the 2020 SafeWork NSW Awards, which acknowledge businesses that demonstrate an outstanding approach to work health and safety.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the awards would recognise businesses which have implemented innovative and effective COVID-safe measures.
“Nominations for the SafeWork NSW Awards are now open and, given this year’s unique circumstances, the awards are focusing on businesses which have best responded to the challenge of COVID-19,” Crouch said.
“With the triple whammy of bushfires, floods and COVID-19 it’s not an easy time to run a local business.
“This year’s awards are a fantastic opportunity to say thank you to the local business owners who have gone above and beyond to make sure their staff are safe.
“I would encourage our community to go online to the SafeWork website and nominate one of our local businesses for their efforts over the last few months.”
Three categories of the SafeWork NSW Awards are:
- Small business – nongovernment (two regional and two metropolitan) Large business – non-government (two regional and two metropolitan); Government.
- Each winner will be eligible for a $3,000 safety rebate.
Nominations are open until August 9, with winners to be announced in October.
