Redefine Properties’ 90 Grayston Drive construction site was awarded first prize in the Master Builders Association North Regional Construction Health and Safety Awards.
The main contractor for 90 Grayston Drive, WBHO, received the award and the project has now progressed into the national competition.
Mike Ruttell, head of development at Redefine says: “Safety is quite literally top of our agenda. We drive it home strongly by discussing it first at every site meeting. A safe site is a positive and productive site.”
Redefine appointed Health and Safety Agent ComPrac Gauteng to manage the overall occupational health and safety during the construction at 90 Grayston Drive. “In this way, we give safety due attention as well as the responsible measures and implementation from WBHO.”
Speaking at the awards ceremony, executive director of the Master Builders Association North, Mohau Mphomela, said: “Companies recognised for their efforts in this regard are exemplary businesses managed by people who, although still pursuing profit, would not allow that objective to harm their staff.”
