We’re proud of our safety record.
Safety is more than a buzzword at Brazier Scaffolding. We take workplace safety seriously, and we believe our safety record is second to none.
A key member of the Brazier team is our full time health and safety coordinator, who is responsible for monitoring our workplace practices and providing ongoing staff training.
We also ensure we stay current with the latest in workplace safety. For example, we are an active participant in ACC’s Workplace Safety Management Practices programme, ACC works with and recognises employers who have established health and safety systems and who demonstrate effective injury prevention practices.
We have also set rigorous safety training standards for all our Scaffolders. These standards include a safety induction programme for apprentice Scaffolders before they are allowed to set foot on any customer worksite. In addition, all Brazier employees undertake periodic safety training that is designed to both evaluate our current safety standards and ensure our employees are familiar with the latest workplace safety practices.
Brazier Scaffolding Ltd currently employs a large base staff. All our Scaffolders and riggers are experienced in all facets of scaffolding and rigging. All staff are given regular tuition in all aspects of any changes in the scaffolding industry.
Brazier Scaffolding Ltd has recently qualified for the ACC WSMP and we currently hold the status of tertiary.
Fortnightly tool box meetings with all staff are compulsory and there input into this is a benefit to the company and out clients.
Brazier Scaffolding Ltd is New Zealand Immigration Service Accredited to help our cause due to an industry shortage of qualified Scaffolders in our industry. This has been very effective for us.
Brazier Scaffolding Ltd was the first company in the South Island to implement the Aculog Scaffold Safety Management System.
Our group of companies are members of the Scaffolding and Rigging New Zealand Association to whom we were a founding member.
Our focus on safety reflects not only our concern for the safety of Brazier employees but also for the safety of everyone on a work site that uses our scaffolding and propping equipment. That is why we ensure we have the right ingredients for safe scaffolding or propping set-up: well-trained competent Scaffolders, quality equipment and materials, and a management team that is committed to making the workplace as safe as possible. That’s the Brazier way.
Setting the standard in scaffolding since 1973.
