Canterbury graduates of Site Safe’s new Health and Safety in Construction programme got an insight into the fun, and the pressure, of top level sport when Israel Dagg was the guest speaker at the event on November 21.
Held at the Canterbury University campus, the graduates were congratulated by Site Safe chief executive Brett Murray for their focus on being safety leaders in the construction sector.
Israel Dagg, All Black great and Canterbury and Hawkes Bay star, talked about his career and also his battles to look after his own mental health in the face of a lot of the pressure that comes with the turf of being an AB.
