Rewarding remarkable risk management


RM Advancer Awards

RM Advancer is Australia's premier risk management awards program, recognising our clients for outstanding performance in risk management. The event showcases the risk management achievements of Vero and GIO Workers Compensation, brokers, and clients. These prestigious awards include categories for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and large organisations.

RM Advancer awards have been postponed until 2022

We appreciate our customers, broker partners and our industry as a whole are going through uncertain times at present. Recognising this, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the RM Advancer Awards until 2022. We know many businesses have adapted and changed to get through these difficult times, and we look forward to showcasing some of their inspiring risk stories at next year’s 15th annual awards.

RM Advancer – The Reject Shop Case Study

Safety is at the heart of The Reject Shop. Vero & GIO Workers Compensation teams were impressed with The Reject Shop’s commitment to safety and continuous improvement with their workplace processes.

Metcash thrives after hailstorm

In 2015, the Metcash Distribution Centre at Huntingwood in Western Sydney suffered a dramatic hailstorm. The damage to the warehouse was so extensive, this huge distribution centre could no longer operate. This triggered Metcash’s Business Continuity Plan.
