TDU News: Event Safety Win For Santos Tour Down Under

The 2010 Santos Tour Down Under has won the ‘Best Public Event Safety Award’ at the South Australian Safe Work Awards 2010.

The event picked up the award at a gala dinner in Adelaide on 29 October and was recognised by the award judges for the event’s strong communication with stakeholders and the detailed occupational health and safety policies, procedures and risk management plans.

“Our number one priority for the Santos Tour Down Under is to stage a safe and successful event,” says Events South Australia’s General Manager, Hitaf Rasheed.

“It is great to see the hard work of everyone involved in the Tour, from the event team to the emergency services, sponsors, councils, contractors and volunteers, has been recognised by the award judges.”

Each year, the Safe Work Awards celebrate and recognise South Australians who have made a significant contribution towards occupational health and safety achieving excellence in the workplace.

This is the second award win of the year for the 2010 Santos Tour Down Under, which was last month named the Best Tourism Event for the second successive year at the Australian Event Awards.

The 2011 Santos Tour Down Under will be held in Adelaide and regional South Australia from 16-23 January 2011. For further information visit
