icare Aware Awards

Recognising excellence in injury prevention

What makes you proud?

Health and safety should be front of mind as employers and workers of NSW go about their day. 

The icare Aware Awards recognise NSW businesses that strive to keep their people safe through their efforts. It's also an opportunity for businesses to showcase their initiatives and share best practice with industry.

Nominate your own business, or a business you know, for an icare Aware Award and share your safety success stories with us.

Why nominate?

The icare Aware Award program is an opportunity for businesses to showcase their efforts to embed a culture that supports strong safety behaviours.

It can also lead to further recognition in the industry. All icare Aware Award recipients will receive automatic selection into the icare Care and Service Excellence (CASE) awards.

Through a focus on injury prevention businesses are playing a valuable part in ensuring workers of NSW return home safely every day.

How does the nomination process work?

You can nominate any employer with an icare Workers Insurance policy. This could be your own organisation or one that you've worked with on a health and safety initiative. 

A selection committee is in place to review nominations. The committee reviews each nomination against agreed selection criteria. The nomination should be related to injury prevention and have demonstrable outcomes.

After a nomination is received a member of the icare Injury Prevention team will contact the nominee to gather more details about their initiative. Once this process is complete, the nomination will go to the next selection committee. All nominees will receive feedback.

If you're selected as an icare Aware Award recipient, icare will meet with you to discuss the best way to showcase your initiative. This may be with a video or an article.
