Aurecon recognised globally for Workplace Health & Safety with multiple awards
From our CEO through to individual employees working on site, Aurecon is committed to health and safety as a way of being, not just something to comply with.
26 August 2021 – International design, engineering and advisory firm, Aurecon, has been recognised for the calibre of its Health & Safety personnel and culture at industry and government awards in Australia, New Zealand and Thailand.
Aurecon CEO, William Cox, said COVID-19 had served to sharpen Aurecon’s focus on health, safety and wellbeing. “By putting people first, Aurecon came out of 2020 a stronger business with an even more resilient culture.”
“To win these health and safety awards across all three of our regions is no coincidence. We are very fortunate to have Health & Safety practitioners that bring their passion, commitment and ideas into Aurecon every day,” said Cox.
