A SPOTLIGHT has been thrown on mental health in the workplace at the 2020 Hunter Safety Awards.
Finalists have been named in the awards, which were founded by Sarah-Jane Dunford and celebrate positive approaches in Work, Health and Safety in the workforce.
There are 13 categories in the awards and this year a new one in the Best Health and Wellbeing category.
Ms Dunford said entries demonstrated that there is a growing focus on mental health safety in the workplace in addition to physical wellbeing. "Mental health issues affect many in our industry, making it so important we don't shy away from that. I'm glad our awards ceremony provides a platform to celebrate and highlight these approaches," she said.
Finalists are listed on the HSA website.
