Celebrating 100% SiteWise Gold, NZ
Date: 30 July 2021
Topline is incredibly proud to have achieved the 100% SiteWise Gold Status for the 5th year in a row - from 2016/2017 to 2021/2022.
This annual health & safety assessment by SiteWise is exceptionally important to all reputable commercial roofing and commercial plumbing contractors across Auckland and New Zealand.
Why It Is Special to Achieve NZ’s SiteWise 100% for 5 Years Running?
Less than 4% of businesses in New Zealand have attained the Gold Status, and fewer still, only 0.36%, have managed to maintain a 100% SiteWise status for 3-5 consecutive years.
To put this in perspective, less than 4 in every 1,000 businesses which attained Sitewise accreditation in 2021/2022 can say they have consistently achieved this ongoing, high level of commitment to health and safety.
What Does Achieving SiteWise Gold mean?
Topline, Auckland’s commercial roofers, plumbers, gasfitters, and drainage contractors, have demonstrated that high quality health and safety systems are in place within the team and business. It reflects an ongoing commitment to Health & Safety.
To achieve Gold Status, businesses must score 90% and over. Topline’s SiteWise Assessment Score was 100%
Why is SiteWise So Important?
If you are in the commercial industry, SiteWise is often required in the prequalification assessment process when choosing a commercial roofing or plumbing contractor.
