Two $10,000 scholarships for improving women’s safety at work are on offer from SafeWork SA.

The scholarships are offered each year to people working on women’s work health and safety initiatives and research.

“These scholarships recognise the legacy of Augusta Zadow, a prominent advocate for women’s suffrage and improved conditions for the women and children working in South Australia’s factories,” SafeWork SA said in a media statement.

Zadow founded the Working Women’s Trade Union and was SA’s first female factory inspector in 1895.

“The scholarships build on Augusta’s achievements by funding the ongoing improvement of the health and safety of women at work through further education, research or solutions to a work health and safety issue faced by working women,” said SafeWork SA acting executive director Marie Boland in a media statement.

Applications close Friday 27 June.
