How are the Winners Chosen?

If an organisation wants their Health and Safety programme to be successfully it is crucial that they get the employees to be involved and enthusiastic about OHS. To achieve this you need to have individuals that go above and beyond to promote and drive OHS compliance in the workplace. The OHS Champion Award gives recognition to some of these individuals that have given their full commitment and dedication to OHS.
