Fiji was honoured in Christchurch last week when two of the employees of Fulton Hogan Hiways received top awards at the Fulton Hogan Annual Recognition Awards Ceremony.

A panel of judges from Fulton Hogan reviewed hundreds of entries from all of its operations spread throughout New Zealand, Fiji and the Pacific region.

“To win even one of these awards is a singular honour, but to win in two categories against the overseas competition is truly special,” said FHH General Manager, Duncan Fraser.

The top safety award, The Bill Perry Living Safety Award, went to the 108 FHH Northern Division staff for their “outstanding achievement of working 365 days injury free.  Accepting the award on behalf of the team was Solomone Nabete, FHH Operations Manager North.

In another major category, Mele Kapaiwai, FHH Construction foreman North, was recognized with the Extra Mile Award for his efforts in saving the life of Malevu villager, Ratu Ritova Baleilevuka through applying CPR to the drowning victim, a technique he learned in his company’s first aid training.

Almost all of the 488 FHH staff of has now been trained in first aid, which John Tinsley, FHH Safety and Training Manager said has now effectively placed FHH first responders throughout most of the country capable of providing emergency first aid treatment.

“We are extremely proud of our safety record in Fiji and to have our efforts endorsed by our parent company is a reaffirmation that the team is moving in the right direction,” concluded Mr Fraser.
