At NZ Strong our company vision is to be the most trusted and respected construction company in NZ. This translates into all aspects of our business, but nowhere more so than in our commitment to the health and safety of our employees, subcontractors and clients. To gain the trust and respect of our clients, employees, subcontractors, supply chain and the public, we apply a very simple but highly effective philosophy as a foundation of our health and safety management systems: Do the right thing, every time.
We also continue to strive and challenge ourselves to improve our health and safety performance with a better every day attitude. The NZ Strong team are actively encouraged and empowered to improve our systems and standards by continually making incremental and manageable improvements. We have confidence that our health and safety systems and approach are industry leading. This can be evidenced in our achievement of triple ISO certification in 2018.
H&S Management Certification
NZ Strong was one of the first NZ construction companies to gain certification against the new worldwide health and safety standard – ISO 45001.
This is testament to the standard of our health and safety management systems and our approach to continuous improvement. We also recently renewed our PREQUAL certification, valid until June 2021.
Health & Safety Culture
At NZ Strong, we actively involve all our staff, at all levels, in all aspects of the planning and assessment of tasks, risk assessments and management of our health and safety processes. Without the active participation of our people, our systems are only that – systems.
We also continuously provide comprehensive training and encourage up-skilling wherever possible to ensure that our people are the committed driving force behind our health and safety culture.
From feedback received from our recent Employee Engagement Survey, when staff were asked “How do you currently rate NZ Strong’s Health and Safety systems culture?”
100% of staff surveyed rated our Health & Safety culture a 6 or higher out of 10, with 90% rating it 8 or higher out of 10.
