Nominations are now open for the Insurance Commission of Western Australia’s (ICWA) Regional Safety Award at the 2017 Regional Achievement and Community Awards.
The Regional Safety Award rewards Western Australian public initiatives that, through their efforts and/or innovation improve safety in the community.
The Award promotes safe road practices in regional communities which encourages fewer and less serious injuries from motor vehicle crashes.
In 2016, the Kimberley RoadWise Committee won the Award for their ‘Horns and Hooves on the Highway’ campaign to raise awareness of the risks of animals straying on to roads and causing injury.
Commission Secretary Kane Blackman said that proportionally, regional motorists lodge more personal injury motor claims than metropolitan motorists.
“The Regional Safety Award is one way we can acknowledge those who aim to keep our roads safe,” he said.
“We encourage people living in regional areas to submit their nominations for the 2017 Regional Safety Award.”
Nominations for the 2017 Regional Achievement and Community Awards close on 26 July 2017. To nominate for the Regional Safety Award click here.
