Precinct Properties & Safety First – A Safety Alliance!

Precinct Properties teamed up with Safety First in 2013 to ensure safer working environments for their tenant businesses. Safety First provides ongoing Management of Fire Evacuation Schemes in Precinct Properties, and offer Emergency Planning and Fire Evacuation training to tenant businesses.

Jenny Maxwell, Safety First Director, says “We are very proud to be involved in Precinct’s commitment to their clients, and to assist them in understanding and establishing strong safety cultures”.

When Safety First created the Health Safety Workplace division in 2015, Precinct Properties took advantage of having a ‘one-supplier’ safety solution and employed their services also to improve their tenants Health and Safety environments with sound advice on OS&H practices. 

Safety First HSW provides and regularly updates the Hazard Registers for all Precinct properties in Wellington and Auckland since 2015. The HSW team also recently provided advice to Precinct Properties on early warning systems for an ammonia hazard, and created ammonia procedures and training systems for a property which handles the chemical.

“We have worked with Safety First since 2013. They help us ensure that we are compliant on all the required fire safety and emergency evacuation procedures, as well as site hazard registers. Recently we worked with the Safety First team to develop an Ammonia Emergency procedure for one of our sites, and the Safety First Workplace Health and Safety team joined in the work on the ammonia emergency compliance requirements. 

The people at Safety First are helpful and extremely knowledgeable, giving us great technical support and peace of mind.” - Leon Hewertson, Senior Facilities Manager, Precinct Properties.
