Scholarship graduates

Some of the 2018 Site Safe graduates at last year's Evening of Celebration.

 

Site Safe is excited to announce that it will be helping 15 people in their drive to become health and safety leaders in New Zealand.

 The 15 were selected from over 100 high-calibre applicants, a record number for Site Safe. The Scholarship recipients receive free training from any of Site Safe courses to achieve the Health and Safety in Construction programme which gives learners the NZQA recognised NZ Certificate in Workplace Health and Safety Practice (Level 3).

 The annual scholarships also come with the bonus of each recipient being teamed up with a skilled Site Safe staff member who will act as a mentor to provide support during the training and assignment work.

 Site Safe chief executive Brett Murray says each Scholarship recipient has been assessed for a range of attributes, including their leadership skills, work ethic, commitment to safety and their contribution to safety in the workplace.

 “These people are the leaders of tomorrow, not just health and safety, but in all areas of our industry.

 “We are really pleased to be able to give their health and safety skills, leadership abilities and their careers a boost,” Brett says.

 “I’d also like to thank our scholarship sponsor companies; The Skills Organisation, Redican Allwood Construction, NZ Strong and NAWIC for supporting these future leaders.”

 All recipients also get complimentary ticket to Site Safe’s annual gala event upon graduation.
