This year’s winners:

Regis Bunbury in WA displayed another year of outstanding creativity and team work. Staff and residents came together to produce a “The Tortoise and the Hare” play which the team had planned in September.   The play covered medication rounds, resident dietary needs, mobility and hoist assistance and a hazard with a comical spin at the end.

We saw a great number of Safety Costumes however, we could not look past The Safety Elves from Regis Greenmount (WA) who came together to celebrate Safety Day.

There were an outstanding number of Safety Cake entries full of creativity and hard work.

Congratulations to Martina and Craig who entered a cake full of carefully crafted fondant figurines!


National Safe Work Month 2016 has been a huge success as staff, residents, volunteers, family members and pets have all been involved with the promotion of Safety.

The WHS Department reminds everyone that at Regis, every month is Safety Month. We look forward to all your entries next year!
