Entries are now open for the 2015 Site Safe NZ Construction Health and Safety Awards.
The awards acknowledge people, sites and companies that are demonstrating excellence in health and safety leadership and innovation.
Site Safe Chief Executive Alison Molloy says the health and safety awards are a way of giving national recognition to those who are taking the lead in making construction sites and workplaces safer.
“We want to use these awards to promote the good stories that exist in the sector, the great ideas, innovation and the leadership that we see. It’s important that we recognise the businesses, large and small, that are making a real difference so that we as an industry can continue to raise the standard of health and safety.”

- Safety Innovation Award – small to medium business (up to 20 employees)
- Safety Innovation Award – large business (over 20 employees)
- Safety Leadership Award – small, medium or large business

The awards will be presented at Site Safe’s Evening of Celebration at Alexandra Park in Auckland on November 11, in conjunction with the Site Safe Certificate in Construction Site Safety graduation ceremony.
The awards are free for businesses to enter and applications can be made via Site Safe’s website www.sitesafe.org.nz/awards
