First 5 Minutes were the proud sponsor of the Occupant Safety and Wellbeing award, for the third consecutive year. In our opinion it’s the most important award of the night, advocating the importance of safety to create positive work environments. The award was presented to this year’s winner RMIT.

RMIT Property Services built a comprehensive hazardous building materials risk and management plan, encompassing three key areas:

  • Threat preparedness - The plan consolidated protocols, permits to work and emergency procedures
  • Safety and wellbeing of occupants - Fundamental to the success of the strategy was recognising that hazmat can be a very emotive subject. As such the plan addressed the management of health risk and stakeholders' perceptions of that risk
  • Improved productivity - RMIT made informed risk decisions, delivering safer more effective outcomes.


First 5 Minutes commends RMIT on their commitment to occupant safety and ongoing work in this area. Congratulations also to all the other finalists and winners!
