We are a member-led organisation committed to preventing harm to frontline workers in our industry.  In practice, we are a group of committed individuals working toward the common goal of improving safety culture for everyone in our industry.  Today we recognise and celebrate some wonderful extra-committed individuals as our 2023 Best and Fairest!

Each year we take a moment to recognise Working Group members who have gone above and beyond; those who have stepped up to make our industry a safer place to be for everyone in our industry.
