We’re being safe to a fault

As part of our ongoing works to improve safety and risk management within the workplace, we have taken steps to install seismic sensors throughout our three buildings. 

Darren Press, Manager Property and Facilities says, “This technology will strengthen and improve our Health and Safety risk management procedures and build further resilience into our business continuity protocols. At Toitū Te Whenua we have a strong focus on the Health, Safety and Wellbeing which is why the Health Safety and Wellbeing and Property and Facilities teams have introduced the seismic sensors.”

These clever little boxes, provide real time data during seismic activity and produce a profile of the event which allows for an immediate assessment of risk to our people and the property. The process itself takes minutes, where previously it would have taken hours or even days to assess the effects of an earthquake. 

Sensors have been placed in the basement, Level 5, 7 and 10 of Radio New Zealand House and both floors of our Hamilton and Christchurch Offices.
