Learn more about the OHS Prevention Challenge

The OHS Prevention Challenge award promotes the prevention of accidents in the workplace, within a framework of healthy competition. The prize is designed to be a simple, flexible exercise that rewards a worksite where there are serious accident hazards, and which demonstrates that OHS stakeholders have implemented safety measures that control or eliminate these hazards at source. It’s a way of highlighting contractors’ efforts to prevent occupational accidents and illnesses on civil engineering and road construction sites.
