Occupational Health & Safety

MASTER BUILDERS has programmes to promote a positive OH&S culture, which contributes to the reduction and elimination of occupational injury, disease, loss and the prevention of damage to the environment. Compliance with the law and the well-being of both employer and employee is the Association’s foremost concern. To this end, the Association administers the National Construction Occupational Health & Safety Competition, the industry’s flagship competition that culminates in an Annual Dinner Awards hosted at the Association’s Congress every year. The Association has also developed a Construction Industry Occupational Health & Safety Manual, which is available in print and CD formats, for use by members. Training programmes are conducted on a regular basis and are designed to:

  • inform members of new OH&S legislation;
  • improve members’ OH&S programmes and procedures;
  • assist members with incident investigations and reports.

Please contact the Association in your region for information on upcoming training programmes.
