Vitae best initiative to promote better worker health
Treescape has always been committed to a healthy and safe work environment for employees, contractors, and the general public.
Since 2019, Treescape has been partnering with the National Foundation for the Deaf to support staff with hearing loss, offer apprenticeships to people with hearing disability, and raise awareness on such invisible disability.
We strongly believe that breaking down the barriers towards hearing loss in the workplace will make Treescape a better and safer place to work. We have become a Hearing Accredited Workplace, and have maintained the accreditation since.
That is why we are extremely proud to be nominated for The New Zealand Workplace Health and Safety Award, under the “Vitae best initiative to promote better worker health” category in 2020.
Organised by Safeguard Magazine and supported by WorkSafe New Zealand since 2005, The New Zealand Workplace Health and Safety Awards celebrate the best of health and safety initiatives, and those working to improve health and safety outcomes in New Zealand. Companies are judged by panel that includes representatives from WorkSafe, a trade union, Safeguard, as well as two health and safety practitioners.
Fifteen awards were presented at the annual Awards gala dinner that was attended by hundreds of delegates.
Our Executive Chair Ed Chignell said, “Treescape’s nomination, and the successful award result, is a reflection of the dedication of our team to be supportive of all staff in the wider Treescape family. We employ such an amazing diversity of people, and it’s fantastic to have this recognised.”
