Visy Health and Safety Awards As an integral part of the company’s national safety week in early October, the General Manager of Visy, Ian Harmer, announced the names of three winners of the “Katrina Wakeling Health and Safety Awards” created in honour of Katrina’s contribution to workplace Health and Safety practices and policies when she was an employee of the company. In presenting the awards Harmer said “..she was a leader within the HSE space and driven to making a difference at Visy. Her beliefs and strategies around HSE culture, teams, leadership and the importance of people set her apart and were the foundations of her success as a HSE professional..” It is another tremendous honour to Katrina’s ongoing legacy and one which makes us all very proud. Room to Read Our sincere thanks to the 100 plus people who braved a wet and windy cold August night to support the Melbourne premiere of ‘Girl Rising’ at Genazzano College in Kew. This inspiring documentary about the lives of nine girls who escaped a life of poverty and illiteracy by learning to read and gain an education. The night was a great success and raised $2750 which is a great start for our Tanzanian effort this year.
