Transdev Australasia Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Metcalfe has been given the Safe Work Australia Safety Ambassador of the Year Award.

The award recognises an individual who leads by example to highlight the importance of a safe working environment and encourages others to improve work health and safety.

The award was presented at a ceremony in Canberra as part of Safe Work Australia Month - an initiative that encourages all workers to get involved in health and safety in their business.

Safe Work Australia Chief Executive Officer Rex Hoy congratulated Metcalfe for his leadership and commitment to work health and safety.

"Leading from the top down Jonathan displayed true leadership by pushing safety as a priority for Transdev Australasia," he says.

"Driving his motivation for safety excellence, is the philosophy that great organisations are differentiated by the culture and values underpinning what they do.

"He has worked tirelessly to improve the safety culture within Transdev. His dedication has been recognised by Transdev staff at all levels."

Metcalfe says the safety of customers and staff is the company’s first priority and upmost core business value.

"Not only am I passionate about driving a safety culture, but I am also proud to say that all the staff at Transdev Australasia have shown through their positive engagement with our many safety programs and campaigns," he says.

"I genuinely hope I have been able to contribute to building a culture where we have made safety not only a priority within our business, but a shared responsibility for everyone at all levels of our organisation."
