2016 Site Safe Construction H&S Awards entries now open


Businesses have the opportunity to be recognised for their efforts in health and safety.

The Site Safe Construction Health and Safety Awards acknowledge people and companies who demonstrate excellence in health and safety leadership and innovation.

Site Safe chief executive Alison Molloy says the health and safety awards give businesses who are taking the lead in health and safety national recognition for their hard work.

“These awards share innovation, great ideas and leaders of New Zealand construction. Recognising business, whether they are big or small, helps the industry lift the standard of health and safety, and allows all to spread the message — ‘Proud to be safe’.”

Categories are:

Safety Innovation Award — small to medium business (small to medium organisations up to 50 employees).

Safety Innovation Award — large business (large organisations over 50 employees).

Safety Leadership Award (small, medium or large business).

Safety Contribution Award (individual or small team).

The awards will be presented at Site Safe’s Evening of Celebration at Alexandra Park in Auckland in November.


Student graduation

The evening also celebrates the graduation of students who have completed the Site Safe Certificate in Construction Site Safety.

The awards are free for businesses to enter, and applications can be made via Site Safe’s web site at www.sitesafe.org.nz/awards.

Winners receive a trophy, certificate, a $1000 gift from the sponsor, and will feature in the Site Safe magazine and other publications.

Applications are open now until September 1, 2016.
