Sydney transport company manager receives WH&S award

Sydney transport and logistics company TOT Transport’s Business Improvement Manager Sean Redmond was presented with the Best Individual Contribution to Workplace Health and Safety at last week’s annual WorkCover NSW Safe Work Awards. TOT Transport itself was also a finalist in the Best Small Business Safety Award.

NSW Minister for Finance and Services Minister Andrew Constance commended the businesses  recognised as part of the 2013 awards.

“This year’s Awards have seen a range of innovative and common-sense solutions to unique workplace safety challenges, where the majority have resulted in significant reductions in lost-time injuries,” said Constance. “Safety should remain a number one priority in every business and I congratulate the winners for sharing their achievements with their industry peers.”

Some of the initiatives acknowledged during the event were the development of cut- resistant gloves, web-based solutions to hazard management and industry alliance projects.

“Many of the safety and return to work initiatives acknowledged at the Awards have the potential to be rolled out across other businesses and industries,” said Constance.

The winners were selected from a group of 21 finalists chosen from more than 140 entries. In the past decade, more than 50 awards have been handed to businesses from a range of industries across metropolitan and regional NSW as part of the annual WorkCover NSW SafeWork Awards program.

“In addition to saving lives and reducing injuries, safe workplaces make for more productive workplaces so it’s in everyone’s interest to invest in work health and safety,” said Constance. “WorkCover and the NSW Government remain committed to working closely with industry and business to continue to develop safety solutions that will drive down injury rates across the State.”
