Exciting news: Rapid Global was proud to take out the silver prize in the 2019 National Safe Work Month competition!
SafeWork SA runs the competition annually to help promote work health and safety initiatives in the workplace. The idea is to raise awareness in companies of the importance of staying safe at work.
There were many companies who put together activities for their workplaces. Participants’ activities were assessed on three elements: originality, relevance to health and safety and promotion. Seeing as here at Rapid we are all about promoting health and safety anyway, it was a no-brainer for us to join the competition!
The activities that we put together included office briefs from our own safety experts, who spoke to us about safety issues relevant to the workplaces of the different types of clients we have.
We created a fun quiz which covered various WH&S legislation, and there were decorated cupcakes and other decorations around to get into the spirit. We even had an adorable new ‘fire warden’ join our team!
All in all, participating in the SafeWork SA competition was a great way of reminding our team and those who interact with us on social media about why we do what we do. It is to help keep people safe!
Seeing workplaces reduce the number of incidents or accidents they have through using an effective suite of products such as those we offer is one of the most rewarding parts of working at Rapid.
Our prize was a $300 voucher and recognition from the SafeWork SA team. It goes without saying then that next year we will be going for gold in the National Safe Work Month competition!
Go team Rapid!
