The five winners of the prestigious 2012 Work Safety Awards Western Australia were announced this morning.

Veolia Transport Perth Pty Ltd, Fremantle Ports, Sinclair Knight Merz and Balfour Beatty UGL, Daniel Smith and Mike Hayward are the winners of the award categories and will now be entered into the national Safe Work Australia Awards.

WorkSafe WA Commissioner Lex McCulloch said today the five winners were terrific examples of the many excellent workplace innovations and occupational safety and health systems being developed in WA.

"These awards provide the opportunity for innovative Western Australians to gain national recognition for their achievements," Mr McCulloch said.

"They recognise outstanding occupational safety and health management, solutions and innovation in both public and private sector workplaces in WA that reduce the risk of work-related injury and disease.

"Awards such as these are all about encouraging best practice in safety and health, and the winners are leading the way by making a significant contribution to making WA workplaces safer."

Winners of the national Safe Work Australia Awards will be announced April 2013.

"Each of the category winners of the 2012 Work Safety WA Awards is a very worthy winner, and each now has the opportunity for their achievements to be recognised across Australia," Mr McCulloch said.

"I heartily congratulate the winners, along with everyone else who nominated for the awards, and encourage businesses of all sizes to nominate for the 2013 Work Safety Awards Western Australia."

More information about the winners can be found on the WorkSafe website.
