The Construction Industry's Health and Safety Competition had its origins in 1963, when the first Building Safety Competition was held by NOSA in collaboration with the Master Builders Association. It took place in Natal and the only facet that was adjudicated on was housekeeping. In 1964 it was held as a national competition and it was extended to two categories namely Building and Allied Trades.

Today, the competition is a comprehensive, well supported annual event, open to all Association's members and FEM policy holders. Companies compete in 10 different categories. Regional competitions are held by each of the Associations and their winners are entered into the national competition. Master Builders South Africa MBSA arranges the national judging of the sites entered for the competition. Some 40 to 50 sites are entered on an annual basis with only a small window of opportunity during which a site can be judged –usually when the work is at peak – the number of entries are always gratifying as is the extremely high standard the entrants subscribe to.

Regional as well as the National Safety award functions are held annually to pay tribute to those who excelled in Health and Safety and thus contributed towards the prevention of onsite fatalities and injuries.
