Good WH&S should be the cornerstone of any collision repair business. The inuagural winner of this award in 2021 was Tammy O'Donnell and the team at Northshore BMW Bodyshop, Sydney. Now O'Donnell did have a more than a slight advantage of having spending her entire career in the world of WH&S before she shared her knowledge and passion with the team at Northshore. We don't expect that every business is lucky enough to have a 'Tammy' but demonstrating a passion for keeping your team safe and creating a safe work culture could earn your business the 'crown' this year.
