The CRHS was selected as a finalist for the 2016 Health, Safety, Environment and Community Awards

The CRHS Working Well Project was shortlisted under the Health Excellence category for its work that aimed to determine the extent and impact of mental health problems and their associated factors in the Australian coal mining industry. The project consisted of two stages. Stage one examined the extent of mental health problems in coal mining employees across multiple coal mines. In stage two, four coal mine sites received the Working Well program which included promoting awareness of mental health problems and suicide and crisis intervention skills for general staff, as well as supervisor training which aimed to build capacity to address mental health problems in staff they supervise.

The winners were announced at the HSEC Awards Dinner on Monday 29th August at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley.,-safety,-environment-community-conference/awards-finalists
