    Improving construction site safety

    With Construction Health and Safety New Zealand (CHASNZ), we recommend that front line leaders continue to learn and develop key skills in hazard management, risk identification, and incident investigation to provide a safe working environment for workers on site. Front-line leaders can include:

    • site managers
    • health and safety managers
    • supervisors
    • team leaders
    • foremen.

    Endorsed by ACC and CHASNZ, the supervisor health and training course is the new benchmark in construction. It creates a common language and skill set that will life business performance.
