Health and Safety is a hot topic in New Zealand, with increasing statutory requirements for everyone associated with a project. We are well placed to embrace this change at Naylor Love, with innovative health and safety systems and consistently excellent results in internal and external safety audits and inspections.
We are absolutely committed to ensuring that everyone on and around our sites is safe, with extensive experience in sensitive live environments such as hospitals and schools, high security environments such as prisons, and high risk environments such as airports.
“Getting everyone home safe at the end of the day is always our top priority.” Rick Herd, CEO
We specify our high expectations for health and safety right from our first contact with prospective subcontractors, and reinforce these on site for both our subs and staff with a comprehensive on-going programme of safety meetings and training, regular inspections, audits and reporting, and recognition for exceptional performance.
