SITE SAFE PUTS TRAINING IN PLACE FOR PHILIPPINE BUILDERS

By NZHJ January 17, 2018 Industry news

Site Safe's initiative is designed to ensure construction workers from the Philippines can start work in New Zealand quickly - and safely.

Site Safe has joined forces with Working In Resourcing, an NZ-based immigration company and its Philippines-based counterpart, the recruitment agency YWA Human Resource Corporation, to deliver entry-level health and safety training for workers preparing to start work in New Zealand.

Site Safe Chief Executive, Alison Molloy, says: “Teaming up with great recruitment agencies in the Philippines means workers will already have the right health and safety training to get them out on to site faster.

“This will help minimise delays for the New Zealand businesses who employ Filipino workers and provide a smoother transition process for the workers on arrival."

Site Safe's Foundation Passport training, which provides successful trainees with site access through a Site Safety Card, will be delivered by experienced trainers as part of the wider induction process for incoming workers.
