With the Awards officially launched today, this early commitment from a key Foundation Partner signals the importance of the initiative to industry.
The awards program and its partners acknowledge the important work performed by First Aid trained individuals every day at work and in our community. At the same time, employers and organisations that invest in First Aid training and initiatives are recognised.
John Haines Founder of the Australian First Aid Awards said, ‘Sarah Bachman and her team at National Precast Concrete Association are clearly committed to the health and safety of people at work, and we welcome their partnership. This will make it easier for their members to nominate for the awards and be recognised for their investment in this area. In addition, association members will be accessing best practice case studies and educational content that will enable continuous improvement.’
The Australian First Aid Awards 2019 will celebrate the Finalists and announce the Winners at a Gala Dinner August 2019, to be hosted at the Melbourne Arts Centre.
