You’ll Receive a Quality Training Experience
When bringing new trainers on board they are assessed on:
- Their training and facilitation skills
- Construction and health and safety expertise
- Industry background
- Their health and safety qualifications and accreditations
Every trainer follows a thorough induction programme prior to delivering their first course.
You'll Receive a Site Safety Card (Passport)
This Site Safety Card is awarded to people who have successfully completed a Site Safe approved training course that provides site access to many construction sites in New Zealand.
Adopting the Site Safety Card (passport) as a site requirement is an effective way an employer, main contractor or client can help meet their legal responsibility to ensure that employees and contractors are not harmed while carrying out their work.
The Site Safety Card comes in a range of colours (white, silver and gold to indicate the level of the training), and replaces Site Safe’s range of passport and certificate cards.
Both these new cards, and any older-style Site Safe cards with a valid expiry date can be used to gain access to construction worksites in NZ.
