2020 has brought us drought, bushfires, floods, a worldwide pandemic and now a global call for social justice. NSCA Foundation, like most, have been monitoring the situation closely to ensure we can still provide our members with continuous and uninterrupted member benefits. While we are seeing restrictions begin to lift, timings for when large gatherings will once again be able to run as normal are yet to be clarified.

NSCA Foundation doesn’t believe it would be possible to deliver the Annual National Safety Awards of Excellence Gala Luncheon to the high standard that our members and the industry have come to expect in 2020. Rather than try to predict and chose an appropriate date later in the year, we regretfully have decided to cancel the event.

The 28th National Safety Awards of Excellence will run in 2021 instead and will be held on Thursday, 14 October 2021 at Doltone House – Hyde Park in Sydney, New South Wales. Award nominations will remain open until Friday, 18 June 2021. For any current nominations that have been commenced or submitted these will be eligible for the 2021 awards without resubmission.
