WENTWORTHVILLE Leagues Club, Kellyville Soccer Club, and Action Insurance Brokers are the Western Sydney stars in the 2020 Safework NSW Awards.
The three diverse businesses each took out Highly Commended in their categories in the annual awards that recognize outstanding achievements in workplace safety across a range of government and non-government businesses.
Wendy Leagues (pictured) came out shining with its proactive and consistent approach to Covid safety for workers and patrons with fastidious contact tracing, astute Covid marshalls making sure patrons and staff were observing social distancing and hand sanitizing.
Action Insurance Brokers, with offices in Penrith and Bella Vista, had as many workers as possible working from home and were fastidious in taping the floors for the safe movement of customers and installing safety screen guards to minimize contact between staff and customers.
But Kellyville Soccer Club appears to have been more proactive than others by becoming pandemic safe way back in March when most people were only learning about the disease.
Doing their own research on the coronavirus, the club instigated various measures that were well-accepted by all.
They included minimizing physical contact between players on and off the field, making sure everyone was using hand sanitizers, and putting up Covid-safety banners around the field for players and spectators.
Club committee members attended every training session and game to make sure precautions were being heeded.
