Taranaki Apprentice Safety Challenge
Run by local safety groups and construction companies, the practical challenges this year were a mixture of popular as well as innovative challenges. Activities focused on a variety of safety topics including first aid, fire safety, electrical safety, trailer safety, mobile scaffolding, impairment at work, recycling and road safety.
Once again we had a record number of 13 teams entered into this year, who were prepared to throw down the gauntlet and attempt to win the Apprentice Safety Challenge. The winners of this year’s event were the Green Army from Clelands Construction, followed by Dialog Fitzroy (previously Fitzroy Engineering) in second place. The third place winners were the TCM Ninjas (Taranaki Construction & Maintenance Ltd).
The winners received the Master Builders Apprentice Safety Trophy, presented by Kerry Williamson, from OMV.
2019 marks the 11th Apprentice Safety Challenge event in Taranaki. Well done to all of the participating agencies and apprentices for another successful event. Please contact [email protected] if would like to register your interest for 2020.
Well done to the winning teams! Clelands Construction, Dialog Fitzroy and Taranaki Construction & Maintenance Ltd
