Raintree Solutions – Global Partners in Change Raintree

Launch of Buildsafe South Africa

Buildsafe South Africa was launched on the 19th January 2012 in Gauteng where the heads of 20 companies signed the BSA 2012 Charter, thus making a commitment to promote the ideals of BSA and actively work toward better Health, Safety and Welfare for workers in the South African Construction industry.

As a long-time supporter of the Buildsafe ‘initiative’ in Dubai, Raintree was an immediate supporter of Buildsafe SA and a founding signatory. Only by working together can we improve SA’s safety culture and having around 30 of the major international and local players and contractors as clients and participants, Raintree is, de facto, already active in motivating companies and people to work together.

With international projects for, inter alia, Fluor, Foster-Wheeler, Linde, CB&I Lummus on behalf of Shell, BHP Billiton, Sasol and many more in places as different as South East Asia and South Africa, the Raintree processes work, because, in addition to our unique approach, we encourage best practice sharing and openness, for which Buildsafe SA will now provide a National forum and vehicle.

Management that is passionate about safety stands a better chance of having a workforce passionate about production – so, Safety Pays.
