Site Safe's Annual Construction Health, Safety And Wellbeing Awards Finalists Announced

As New Zealand’s construction industry deals with the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, health and safety has remained integral to the ability of businesses to continue to operate.

Site Safe’s annual Construction Health, Safety and Wellbeing Awards were created to promote health, safety and wellbeing in construction by recognising those companies that make a real difference.

To continue to push health and safety as a top priority for business, the aim of the awards is to acknowledge people, sites and businesses that are demonstrating excellence in the areas of leadership, innovation, and contribution in New Zealand’s construction sector.

Brett Murray, Site Safe Chief Executive, says that to recognise initiatives that come from the wider workforce helps the organic buy-in to health and safety.

"The entries this year have shown that people are taking this seriously and want to be recognised for the great work they are doing in the health and safety space.

"Building support for health and safety initiatives from the ground up is key to achieving the culture shift we are undertaking as an industry towards a culture that values health and safety as a top priority".

This year the judges were particularly impressed with the calibre and maturity of all entries received.

Award winners will be announced at Site Safe’s annual Evening of Celebration, an industry-wide celebration of health and safety excellence, along with Site Safe scholarship recipients and graduates from their Health and Safety in Construction programme.
