Liviero Building was the proud winner of three awards in the 2016 Master Builders South Africa (MBSA) National Safety Competition.
This outstanding achievement is the result of the exceptional attention to detail and meticulous care taken by Liviero site teams in their work areas, comments Brad Boertje, managing executive of Liviero Building. “Our construction teams’ commitment to constantly striving for the safest sites sets them apart, and this dedication is reflected in our latest results in the MBSA’s prestigious, annual industry competition,” he states.

Liviero’s Eskom Wilge site took top honours in Category H, for contracts between R300 and R500 million, while the contractor’s Jelf Taylor Crescent site won Category F, for contracts between R75 and R150 million. Liviero’s Pavilion team took first place in the competition’s Category E, for contracts between R25 and R75 million.
Liviero was also among the top achievers in Categories D and G. The company’s Midlands Medical Centre site secured third place in Category G, for contracts between R150 and R300 million, and its KwaMnyandu Pedestrian Bridge contract took fourth place in Category D, for contracts between R10 and R25 million.
The MBSA National Safety Competition follows on from regional events in which Liviero also excelled, Boertje reports. The company’s KwaZulu-Natal sites won five regional awards in this stage of the competition. In addition to the many site-related awards, Liviero Plant was placed second in the regional competition for plant and storage yards.
The annual MBSA safety awards ceremony was held at the International Convention Centre in Durban, during the MBSA’s annual congress.
“We at Liviero are extremely proud of the efforts of all staff and stakeholders in consistently setting the highest standards in occupational health and safety,” Boertje concludes.
