In addition to celebrating Mitch Graham's accomplishment, Unison has been awarded the 2023 Workplace Safety Award for its Critical Risk Framework – a comprehensive approach to identifying, evaluating and managing health and safety risks; and the 2023 Public Safety Award for its work to establish health and safety risk registers for third party activities and the public.
