Victorian NECA Awards 2008

Tuesday, 12 August, 2008

The 2008 Victorian NECA Excellence Awards were held on 8 August to recognise the high quality of work carried out by Victorian electrotechnology contractors in the last 12 months. Encouraging and rewarding excellence and professionalism within the industry, the awards program demonstrates the significant achievements of the industry — both among members and apprentices.

Philip Green, NECA Victoria CEO, said: “The number of Excellence Award entries is growing as members realise the value of these awards, not only to the reputation of their business but also to their staff, who appreciate this recognition of the pride they take in their work.

“Our passion is our projects. These awards give us a chance to recognise the people who have made outstanding contributions to their companies and our contractors who have taken on particularly challenging projects and executed them well.”

Judging criteria include quality of work on project, management systems, technical innovation and work practices including OHS and training.

The winners are eligible for the national awards, to be held in Sydney on 14 November 2008.
