That’s The Canterbury Rebuild Safety Charter.
It’s A Blueprint For The Region, And A Blueprint For Safer Working Anywhere…
They are undertaking the largest, most demanding rebuild anywhere. At the same time they are building a new, inclusive safety culture with the Canterbury Rebuild Safety Charter. As they phrase it in their vision statement, ‘The earthquakes reminded us that the most important thing is people. The Canterbury Rebuild Safety Charter puts people first. By demonstrating leadership and working together, we will rebuild Canterbury safely and create a legacy to be proud of’.
The Charter’s an agreement on health & safety between the leaders of a number of government organisations and companies leading the rebuild. It includes 10 aspirational commitments and detailed actions designed to meet those commitments. They are worth sharing.
And here’s a question. How willingly – or how readily - could your business sign up to a Charter like this? Worth thinking about? McLeod is not involved in the Canterbury rebuild, but this Charter fits with the sort of company we want to be. So we have got behind it. Why not join us?
