Eligibility Criteria for 2021 High Achiever Awards

The Excellence in Safety and High Achiever Awards are made to organisations who, over a continuous period, have achieved a minimum of distinction level.

Any organisation who submitted an entry in 2020 and achieved a distinction level or above will be considered for a high achiever award for 2021 based on their 2020 and previous results.

Due to COVID-19, a number of regular entrants were unable to enter for the Awards in 2020. Due to the unique situation that presented itself, the 2020 Awards will not be included in determining the number of continuous years at distinction level in the following scenarios:

  • No entry was submitted in 2020.
  • An entry was submitted in 2020 but achieved an award below distinction level.
