Safe Work and Return to Work Awards 2020

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland’s priority is to protect the health and safety of its staff and stakeholders. We also understand that many businesses are going through a difficult period with the effects of COVID-19.

With this in mind, we have decided to cancel the Safe Work and Return to Work Awards for 2020.

All of your outstanding examples of leadership and innovation in work health and safety, electrical safety and return to work will still be eligible for future awards programs.

Check out the 2019 winners and finalists for the Safe Work and Return to Work Awards.
