Nominations are now open for the new and prestigious Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards.

The awards combine the former Work Safety Awards WA and the Safety and Health Resources Sector Awards, and will continue to celebrate and acknowledge safety initiatives across Western Australian workplaces.

Mines and Petroleum and Industrial Relations Minister Bill Johnston said the awards recognise outstanding solutions and innovations in the health and safety sector.

"I encourage companies and individuals to consider nominating for the awards and taking advantage of the opportunity to have their safety achievements publicly recognised."

This year there are five categories which include: work health and safety invention of the year; best solution to a work health and safety risk; best workplace health and wellbeing initiative; Leadership Excellence Award; and Safety and Health Representative of the Year.

Nominations close on June 7, 2019. Winners will be chosen in October. For more information, visit www.dmirs.wa.gov.au/safetyawards
