Canterbury Safety Charter - Sherry Peck
The Charter was developed in the early days of the Canterbury rebuild as a way of making sure everyone who works in construction in Canterbury goes home safe and healthy every night.
It’s an agreement on health and safety between more than 370 organisations – from small companies to large construction firms and from government organisations to NGOs. Signing the Charter means your organisation will meet or work towards the Charter’s ten commitments and detailed actions.
If your organisation is involved in construction in Canterbury then you too can sign up to the Charter.
We would love you to join the more than 370 organisations who together are all helping to raise standards of health and safety across construction in Canterbury.
By signing the Safety Charter you’re making health and safety a priority.
You’re also making a public commitment to the Charter, and you will need to make sure you hold your organisation and the people who work for you to account for implementing the Charter commitments.
