About us

Work, health and safety are fundamental to our lives and are, more than ever, a central focus for organisations. The Hunter region is well-known for leading the way in industry, this in turn has led to the region becoming champions of WHS.

The Hunter Safety Award were born out of desire to recognise companies and individuals within the Hunter region who are demonstrating best-practice and innovative approaches when it comes to workplace health and safety (WHS).

Whilst the name may be the Hunter Safety Awards, these awards acknowledge the full gamut of WHS, including the idea of embracing wellness as part of a workplace, maintaining a healthy life - both at work and at home, as well as the more traditional safety elements such as PPE, risk assessments and safety management planning.
