Site Safe’s new partnership with Filipino recruitment organisations is helping ensure workers hit the ground running when they arrive here.
Site Safe has joined forces with Working In Resourcing, a Kiwi-based immigration company and its counter-part Philippines-based recruitment agency, YWA Human Resource Corporation, to deliver entry-level health and safety training for workers preparing to start work in New Zealand.
Site Safe chief executive Alison Molloy says the partnership will benefit employers by ensuring workers are work-ready when they arrive.
“Teaming up with great recruitment agencies in the Philippines means workers will already have the right health and safety training to get them out on to site faster.
“This will help minimise delays for the New Zealand businesses who employ Filipino workers and provide a smoother transition process for the workers on arrival.
“We recognise that access to workers is a significant hurdle facing the construction industry and believe that this partnership will help improve turnaround timeframes for both our members and the wider industry.”
