The Construction Industry Peak  Body

Trades, Supervisors and Managers

Backed by all key Construction industry bodies to improve our H&S performance.


The Construction Safety Council represents everyone that works in the construction industry. With representation from industry leaders, we’re working together to improve the health and safety performance of our industry for our people.


We believe it’s worth the effort.




Starting in 2009, the Chief Executives and Presidents of Registered Master Builders Federation (RMBF), Certified Builders Association New Zealand (CBANZ), Civil Contractors NZ (CCNZ), New Zealand Specialist Trade Contractors Federation (NZSTCF) and Site Safe New Zealand (SSNZ), worked together to develop a health and safety strategy for the entire construction sector.

In the years following, Construction Safety Council developed a strategy to lead our industry into a safer future, by increasing the competency of our workers, and by setting a common standard as an industry.

From this, the ConstructSafe scheme was born. A scheme that changes our thinking and allows us to measure individuals to our industry standard for health and safety. We are now working as one industry to continue to improve worker competency standards.
