On October 11, 2018, the NSCA Foundation National Safety Awards of Excellence took place in Doltone Park, Sydney. The National Safety Awards of Excellence are Australia’s longest running and only independent awards, recognising outstanding Work Health and Safety initiatives within Australia. Now in their 26th year, these awards continue to celebrate organisations and people that actively promote Work Health and Safety (WHS) as a cornerstone of elite business performance. The awards are open to any Australian operating business, organisation, and alliance or individual in the public or private sector, with a workplace health and safety initiative.
Finalists are formally recognised with winners announced at the National Safety Awards of Excellence gala luncheon. The presentation gala luncheon is a celebration of all the hard work teams and individuals contribute towards the health and safety of their colleagues and employees. Along with a celebration of the continuous improvement in their business performance.
Fire and Safety Australia donated and awarded two Safety Scholarships at the 2018 National Safety Awards of Excellence ceremony. With over 90 applicants, these two winners of the Safety Scholarships were chosen because they align with Fire and Safety Australia’s 4 Core Values. These Safety Scholarships are to help these two future leaders grow their safety careers. At Fire and Safety Australia, all actions of our company are based on our vision for the future and the four core values that we live by. Our purpose is ‘to forever change safety in the world…one experience at a time’. We believe in hands-on ‘memorable’ and practical training to make sure people get the most out of their training course with us.
The 4 core values these applicants were judged upon and the basis that Fire and Safety Australia operates on are:
Passion for Safety
FSA was founded because of our passion for improving safety and emergency response within Australia. Our team understands the importance of what we do and our clients bear witness to our passion, enthusiasm, and dedication to improving safety. We live and breathe safety and we have a real passion for what we do.
We exist to make workplaces safer workplaces and we must demonstrate safe work practices within our own company. The safety of our team and our clients is paramount to our success and the betterment of the world. What we do is more important than money… together by demonstrating our passion for safety we can make a difference… together we can forever change safety in the world.
Commitment to Our Team and Clients
Our team and our organisation are committed to achieving our vision. We realise that nothing ever gets achieved without the commitment of our organisation to our team and our clients. Our team goes above and beyond the ‘norm’ to deliver outstanding client services every day. Our team demonstrates commitment to each other by supporting and helping our team through both good times and bad.
We work together as a team and ensure that the support we give to each other never waivers. We trust each other and work together to achieve a common purpose. We aim to be the best employer that our team has ever worked for. We strive to provide amazing experiences for our team and we only want team members who share our values in everything that they do.
We will lend a helping hand to support our team and our clients when they need us the most and recognise that our team and our clients are an integral part of our organisation and that we couldn’t exist without them. We will support our team and our clients in their toughest hour and not let them down. Our commitment to our clients is demonstrated by our passion for what we do… the amazing feedback that we receive from our clients and the significant year on year growth of FSA.
As an organisation, we are friendly and make amazing first impressions with our team and our clients. We try to amaze our clients by providing excellent training and services that are ‘a step above’ what they receive from our competition. We do this because we want to add value to our clients and wow people whenever possible through both our positive attitude and the memorable experiences that they receive. We will create memorable experiences for our clients to ensure that they remember our messages.
We want to create memorable experiences for our team members and create an organisation that is memorable as it stands the test of time. By being memorable we believe that we will improve safety at our client’s workplaces, contribute effectively to society and grow a successful organisation. We will create memorable experiences for our team. We will ‘wow’ our team with experiences that are not often provided by employers and we will, in turn, have the best team members in our industry. Our team is the lifeblood of our organisation and we will do our very best to create memorable experiences for them.
Thirst for Improvement
As an organisation, we will not stay stagnant. We thirst for learning and improvement in everything that we do. We will not take for granted our team and our clients and we will always actively seek to improve all aspects of our organisation all of the time.
To us ‘just good enough’ never is. We will always thirst to improve everything that we do all of the time to stay ahead of our competitors and to ensure that we are always improving all aspects of our organisation.
Our team and clients are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas about how we can improve our organisation at any time. We thirst for improvement to better ourselves, our industry and the services that we provide. By always looking to improve ourselves we can stay ahead of market changes and actively ensure that our organisation remains a great place to work and a great organisation with success for years to come
