The Association Welcomes New Partnership with Canterbury Safety Charter

The Canterbury Safety Charter is a not-for-profit with Charitable status, promoting good health and safety practices across all industries.

The Safety Charter was established following the Canterbury earthquakes with the aim of engaging with and educating the rebuild workforce to reduce the incidence of workplace harm Over that time, the Canterbury region saw a massive amount of construction activity, with no fatalities. We put this down to the collaboration with our members and the Charter, working together, striving to adhere to our 10 Charter commitments.  Every organisation and individual who joins the Charter commits to a process of evaluation and improvement in these areas, with the global intent of promoting good practice and reducing workplace harm. To this day, the 10 commitments are as relevant now as they were back then.

Nearly 10 years on, our mission now has evolved to provide connection and collaboration in the Safety Charter member community, to improve health and safety performance. The Safety Charter can assist you in better understanding to meet your health and safety obligations. They provide support and connections for your business to grow health and safety knowledge and awareness.
