We reported on the Smart Lid system a couple of years ago; at that time Seamus wasn't that impressed with it. It turns out that this Aussie invention has impressed somebody, though; it's just won an occupational health and safety award for best new product.
I'm honestly not sure how a product that was around four years ago can be the best 'new' product (sometimes it pays not to think too hard about awards ceremonies), but according to a release sent to us by Smart Lid systems, they've just won the Occupational Health & Safety Magazine 2011 New Product Of The Year award. Can't say I'm a dedicated reader of the tome in question, but any Aussie invention is worth plaudits for success. [Smart Lid]
