New Zealand Workplace Health and Safety Awards 2022
Tauranga City Council was selected as a finalist in the prestigious New Zealand Workplace Health and Safety Awards for 2022 in the Innovation category. The awards are organised by Thomson Reuters, publisher of Safeguard magazine, and supported by WorkSafe New Zealand and ACC.
The Tauranga City Council submission focused on an innovative solution to a risky issue at the Te Maunga wastewater plant. A jig was designed and manufactured to assist with the safe installation and removal of biosolid valves. This resulted in a win for the public; for our city’s ratepayers with lower costs to complete the task, for the contractors with the task being simplified, and for the site’s operation not being disrupted as extensively as before.
We’re incredibly proud to have made as a finalist amongst some of the best health and safety leaders and initiatives in the country.
