Nominations are open for the 2014 Comcare Work Health and Safety Awards.

The Comcare Work Health and Safety Awards recognise and reward excellence in workplace health and safety, rehabilitation and return to work achieved by individuals and organisations within the Comcare scheme.

This year the awards program has been expanded to open up nominations to those involved in getting injured workers back to health and work, including rehabilitation providers and treaters.

The 2014 awards categories are:

  • Category one—Workplace Health and Wellbeing Initiative
  • Category two—Workplace Health and Safety Management System 
  • Category three—Solution to an Identified Workplace Health and Safety Hazard 
  • Category four—Individual Contribution to Health and Safety
    a. An individual
    b. An individual with responsibility for WHS as part of their duties
  • Category five—Health and Safety Representative of the Year 
  • Category six—Rehabilitation and Return to Work Management
    a. An organisation
    b. An individual
  • Category seven—Contribution to Rehabilitation and Return to Work Management by Provider
    a. An organisation
    b. An individual
  • Category eight—Claims Manager of the Year

Comcare CEO, Paul O’Connor said effective support for injured workers is a collaborative effort—we believe it’s right to recognise those individuals and organisations that play an important role in supporting injured workers to return to work and participate in their workplace and community.

“The awards allow us to showcase the achievements of those working hard to keep employees safe, both physically and mentally at work and helping them recover from injury. Sharing best practice across our scheme and broader industry is a great way to allow senior leaders to tap into an idea, concept or program and explore ways to improve the safety and support for their own staff,” Mr O’Connor said.

The awards will be presented at a dinner in Melbourne on Wednesday 10 September 2014 as part of the Comcare National Conference.

Nominations close on 24 April 2014.
