The University's annual OHS award recognises staff members who have made a significant contribution to improving OHS awareness and processes at the University, in addition to their normal duties.

The winner of the OHS Award for 2011 was Louise Atkins from Science Marketing and Communication.

Louise was recognised for her active management of OHS risks related to student recruitment and community engagement activities on and off campus, including completion of site risk assessments for recruitment events. She has been actively involved in local emergency management and advocates strongly for the health and wellbeing of her fellow workers. Louise has helped find practical solutions for numerous health and safety issues and promotes a shared responsibility for OHS amongst staff.
