2024 Awards

The NSCA Foundation National Safety Awards of Excellence are Australia’s longest running and independent awards, recognising outstanding Work Health and Safety initiatives. 31 years in, these awards continue to celebrate organisations and people that actively promote workplace health and safety as a cornerstone of elite business performance.

The awards are open to any Australian or New Zealand operating business, organisation, and alliance or individual in the public or private sector, with a workplace health and safety initiative that complies with one of the eleven categories.

You can submit your nomination up until midnight, Sunday, 16 June 2024. A live announcement of finalists will occur on Friday, 23 August 2024 with all submissions notified of the status of their entry later that day.

Winners will be announced at the National Safety Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner on Thursday 31 October, 2024 at the Sydney Town Hall.

Winners will also have their stories told nationally through NSCA Foundation’s National Safety magazine.
