Site Safe chief executive Brett Murray talking to the Hutt Valley Employers Health and Safety Forum in March. 



This is a big year for Site Safe and for our 6000 members.

We have a number of initiatives underway designed to create even better courses and we’re polishing our existing range of products and services to make sure everything we offer is useful and easily applied to the workplace.

Some of our recent and upcoming initiatives include:

  • The opening of the new Dunedin office and the upgrading of the Hamilton one are part of our commitment to boosting training across New Zealand.  
  • The revised Site-Specific Safety Plan is a good example of working with industry groups on a safety product that is now seen as belonging to the entire industry. We have just run workshops around the country explaining how the new SSSP system works and how to get the most out of it.
  • There will be a new safety audit service rolled out in 2020 so companies can check how their health and safety operations measure up against industry best practice.
  • The Passport Plus courses have been updated and improved, while the revamped Height and Harness Safety and Fall Arrest Systems courses are currently being trialled.
  • We are always talking to industry asking what people want from our foundation training and how courses can best be delivered to trainees.
  • We will continue to work in the area of mental health in construction to support initiatives that aim to bring down suicides among construction personnel and boost mental health and wellbeing.
