Why we’re here
The Canterbury rebuild is the largest repair and build in New Zealand. WorkSafe New Zealand has a dedicated team to deliver its Canterbury Rebuild Health and Safety Programme. We are:
- Working with industry – we continue to provide funding and resources to support the Canterbury Rebuild Safety Charter - a unique collaboration between Government, industry and unions to support health and safety in the Canterbury construction industry.
- Targeting key harms and high-risk areas – we do this through trade breakfasts and forums, and developing relevant factsheets and guidance for industry. Videos of our regular trade breakfasts and events for industry are on our events and videos page.
- Focusing on occupational health – by running events and campaigns, such as the ‘Beat Fatigue’ water bottle campaign and the occupational health van.
- Targeting at-risk and vulnerable workers – working with other agencies to support vulnerable workers and providing factsheets to help organisations understand how to support migrant workers.
