Workers’ compensation added to RM Advancer awards
Australia’s premier risk management awards have raised the bar for promoting new standards for risk management excellence with the addition of a new category.

Vero has now opened up the 2017 RM Advancer Awards to GIO Workers’ Compensation customers who have delivered innovative and effective risk management plans.

The awards now include five categories: Property Risk Management, Motor Risk Management, Liability Risk Management, the Enterprise Wide Award and, the new category, Workers’ Compensation Risk Management.

“Workers’ compensation is typically the biggest insurance cost for an organisation, so risk management can have a tremendous impact,” said Dale Garbett, leader, risk engineering capability team with Vero.

“Interest from a wide range of organisations across Australia continues to grow and that really pleases us. Clearly, the value of effective risk management message is getting through on so many levels.” 

The addition follows the introduction of the special Enterprise Wide Award for SMEs in 2016.

To enter the awards, interested parties have until August 31 to complete a short expression of interest for the initial nomination.
