A trio of leading companies in the broad transport and logistics sector have taken out individual categories in the NSCA Foundation/GIO Workers Compensation 28th Annual National Safety Awards of Excellence.

The awards are affiliated with the National Safety Council of Australia (NSCA).

Linfox Logistics gained the Best Wellbeing Program award, while Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) took out the Best Solution of a WHS Risk (Large Business) gong.

Australia Post won Best Return & Recovery at Work System category, while also appearing as a finalist in the Best Mental Health Program section

Meanwhile, North Queensland Bulk Ports was a finalist in the Best Solution of a WHS Risk (Medium Business) section.

Linfox noted that the Best Wellbeing Program recognises an innovative health and wellbeing program that has resulted in improvements within an organisation.

"This NSCA Best Wellbeing Program Award is a wonderful endorsement of Linfox’s commitment to safety, health and wellbeing through our Healthy Fox program," Linfox Logistics Australia and New Zealand CEO Mark Mazurek said.

"It is also a reflection on the people who bring our ‘be safer’ message to life every day for the benefit of our team members, as part of our Leading the Way 2025 business strategy.

"I would like to acknowledge the work of our Healthy Fox team and those who support them, including the Safety, Health and Wellbeing team, Healthy Fox site champions and mental health first aiders across our operations."

TMHA’s award came courtesy of its forklift safety development.

"The NSCA awards recognise the efforts of organisations who actively promote a safety culture within their operations, with our winning TMHA Tyne lifter representing a lifting solution which has eliminated manual handling risks associated with removing Tyne’s from the carriage of forklifts," it said in a statement.

"To win this award emphasises the strength of empowerment and trust in our people, as our Annual Safety Solution Competition (Safety Tank) initiative provided a positive platform for our employees who are doing the job every day to tap into their skills and knowledge to develop innovative solutions to eliminate or significantly reduce safety risks.

"Without the courage and motivation of David Roberts (Technician, Perth) who developed the Tyne lifter as part of the competition and all other 17 submissions in our first year of safety tank, TMHA would not be celebrating such a remarkable achievement."
