Congratulations to E tū member Brent Armitage, who is this year’s Safeguard Health and Safety Representative of the Year.
Brent’s award recognises his outstanding work as an HSR, working as a loader at Air New Zealand. Brent first became aware of health and safety processes while working in the mining industry in Australia: “We had health and safety on steroids there,” he says.
Brent’s leadership skills mean he’s now been promoted to the role of health and safety advisor for Auckland Airport, a role he loves. “I just want people to go home safe,” he says.
