Greencap are proud to embody and promote the continuing improvement of safety in business; this award stands as a testament to the responsibility and determination required to reach this level of achievement.

For the 5th consecutive year, Greencap sponsored the award for ‘Best Continuous Improvement of a WHS Management System’. Defence Housing Australia (DHA) were successful in gaining this title, Dean Comrie (Greencap- General Manager), proudly presented the trophy for this award to Chelsea Cook on behalf of DHA.
