Never Compromised Safety

Health and Safety (H&S) guide our operations at all levels and it will never be compromised. On our sites, safety comes first because essentially it’s the most important thing we do. H&S isn’t a department at NZCCL — we care for people first.

NZCCL has an ongoing commitment to achieving the only acceptable goal of zero incidents through training, education, behaviour modification, and continual improvement. We take a proactive approach to safety which starts in the pre-construction phase and progresses to our site-specific plan.




Our passion for what we do and our desire for perfection drives us to ensure that production processes are safe for both employees and external collaborators.
Bevan Wood, 2018

It's the right thing to do We won't apologise for H&S

Our culture of safety begins with Bevan leading by example to embed a collaborative effort among all project team members and workers. 

People are Bevan's business — keeping them safe is crucial. He's committed to best practice on site, in the office and he wants 'his people' to enjoy a healthy work-life balance. The opportunity to spend quality time with families is paramount.
