An­nounc­ing the health and safety lead­ers of the fu­ture


Site Safe has an­nounced the 2017 re­cip­i­ents of the Cer­tifi­cate in Con­struc­tion Site Safety schol­ar­ships. The six­teen fu­ture safety lead­ers will now em­bark on the jour­ney to com­plete Site Safe’s most ad­vanced health and safety qual­i­fi­ca­tion, says the on-site health and safety or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Site Safe Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Ali­son Mol­loy said this year’s can­di­dates faced some strong com­pe­ti­tion, with a record num­ber of en­tries re­ceived.

“More than 95 peo­ple ap­plied for the schol­ar­ship pro­gramme, so there were some tough de­ci­sions, even though we in­creased the num­ber of schol­ar­ships this year. All of the ap­pli­cants were of a very high cal­i­bre and well sup­ported by their em­ploy­ers. It’s great to see the in­dus­try back­ing their peo­ple and recog­nis­ing the value of health and safety train­ing. I’d also like to thank Do­min­ion Con­struc­tors for their sup­port com­ing on board as our in­au­gu­ral schol­ar­ship spon­sor.”

The 2017-2018 round marked the first award of the new Women in Con­struc­tion schol­ar­ship, with four can­di­dates suc­cess­ful in the new cat­e­gory. Six schol­ar­ships were awarded across the Maori and Pasi­fika cat­e­gories, three in the Un­der 25 and three in the Open cat­e­gory.

All re­cip­i­ents re­ceive com­pli­men­tary train­ing to­wards the Cer­tifi­cate in Con­struc­tion Site Safety, a ded­i­cated Site Safe men­tor to sup­port them in their stud­ies, and a com­pli­men­tary ticket to Site Safe’s an­nual gala event upon grad­u­a­tion.
