Site Safe Announces New CE

Site Safe New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Chief Executive.

Brett Murray has been appointed as the not-for-profit’s new Chief Executive and will take over from outgoing Chief Executive, Alison Molloy, on September 3.

Site Safe Chairman Peter Jackson said he was delighted to announce Mr Murray’s appointment.

“Brett brings an extensive knowledge of health and safety, and a wealth of experience to the position. We are confident his leadership abilities and understanding of the health and safety environment make him the right person to guide Site Safe through the next stage of our journey as an organisation.”

Mr Murray’s background in health and safety includes several senior roles with WorkSafe, MBIE and the Department and Labour. Most recently, as General Manager Operations at WorkSafe, he was responsible for WorkSafe’s inspectorate and technical support functions. While Central Region Manager at the Department of Labour, he headed the investigation into the Pike River disaster and as GM High Hazards and Specialist Services with MBIE, later went on to establish the High Hazard Unit, which provides specialist oversight of New Zealand’s petroleum, extractives and major hazard facilities sectors.

Mr Murray said he was looking forward to the opportunity to work closely with the construction industry and government agencies to lift health and safety performance.

“Safe and healthy workplaces are productive workplaces. I firmly believe good health and safety practices are the cornerstone of operational excellence and that the construction sector can lead the way in New Zealand being recognised as a safe country to work in.

“Site Safe already plays a key role in supporting positive change in the sector. I am excited about the platforms and opportunities that will provide the organisation the opportunity to grow as a change leader and influencer, both within the industry and more broadly with government and other key stakeholders.”

Mr Jackson thanked outgoing Chief Executive, Alison Molloy, for her contribution to health and safety and to the industry.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge Alison’s outstanding dedication to improving health and safety in New Zealand construction over the past five years. We wish her every success for the future.”
