Why Enter?

“In 2016, we saw the value of recognising the efforts our greater team had made to generate a real difference in safety in Fonterra. We believed that The Safeguard awards was an extremely appropriate forum to highlight these efforts in the hope that some of our entries would be considered to be acknowledged. At Fonterra, safety is in our DNA and we haven’t really taken the time to sit back and highlight the achievements we have made. I am really glad we did realise this and the process of engaging our teams to enter into award categories and highlight the achievements that have been made has really focussed us on getting a new energy to be even better.

As a leader in Health & Safety, I was so excited our teams were nominated for these prestigious awards as it had done so much for pride and spirit, and I had really no expectation to win any. To be standing later in the evening on the podium with the whole of the H&S team after being announced winner of the supreme award was both humbling and just the icing on the cake.”

Greg Lazzaro, Global Health, Safety, Resilience & Risk Director at Fonterra, Supreme Winners at the 2016 New Zealand Workplace Health & Safety Awards

“Winning the Safeguard Award for the Best Health and Safety initiative for a small business this year was one of the high points of our year at Regents Park. It was a huge morale booster and reinforcement to the team that having each other’s back pays off.

Our involvement with the award has opened doors for us to be leaders in Agriculture health and safety and has positioned us to be an influential voice and changing the current bad track record for fatalities, injuries and occupational health issues plaguing the industry.”

Neriah Broughton, Health & Safety Manager, OB Group, Small Business Category Winners at the 2016 New Zealand Workplace Health & Safety Awards.
