Cornerstone Building


Cornerstone Building are reaping the rewards of a strong safety program, having tendered for and won several major contracts thanks, in part, to their excellent safety systems.

On the Health and Safety bandwagon from the beginning, Jason and Jess from Cornerstone Building have experienced first-hand how great Health and Safety can make a business stand out in a pile of competitors tenders.

As well as developing a tailored Health and Safety Policy for Cornerstone, we provide ongoing Health and Safety inspections, toolbox talks and support services for team. If any of their subbies need a hand with safety, we have become the go-to Health and Safety Consultants thanks to our proven ability to deliver.

In our longstanding relationship with Cornerstone Building we’ve helped them achieve a 94% SiteWise score, placing them amongst the top rated builders in Christchurch.

“I highly recommend Nailed it Safety Solutions. We’ve worked with Chris over a number of years and appreciate the approach he takes when inspecting our sites – professional, friendly, and approachable. The guys appreciate the experience and knowledge he brings to the table and we’ve made several improvements in our business that have saved us both time and money, not to mention put us in the good books with our clients. We use Nailed It Safety Solutions exclusively for our Health and Safety and refer them to all our contractors too.”

IQ Homes is a well-known architectural builder based in Christchurch and have completed some of the city’s best-known homes.

Before they came to us, owners Scott and Janelle were often kept up at night worrying about Health and Safety and wondering what would happen if one of their team fell off a ladder. They knew they had to do something about Health and Safety – but didn’t have the time. They also had several staff who were reluctant to get on board with safety.

We created a customised system for IQ Homes, leaving Scott and Janelle free to focus on their business (and enjoy a good night’s sleep). With careful attention to support, toolbox talks and staff training we’ve been pleased to see that the system has been embraced by all members of their team.

We’re even more pleased to report that IQ Homes audit scores have risen from below 60% to consistently hitting high 90%’s in less than a year of working together.

“Chris has been an asset to our organisation. He has excellent written and verbal communication skills, is extremely organised and has a professional but friendly approach towards our builders and contractors on our various sites. Chris has helped implement several improvements within our business which have saved us both money and time. Ultimately we feel that all our builders and contractors are 100% safe onsite, which is extremely important to us. We 100% recommend Nailed It Safety Solutions. It’s a weight off our shoulders knowing that this is all being looked after independently!”

Trent Building Solutions


Richard and Amie of Trent Building Solutions believe both houses and Health and Safety programmes are best built by professionals.

Winner of the 2015 House of the Year award, Trent Building is no stranger to quality. However, while they were focused on doing great work, the safety side had become overwhelming. Richard and Amie were never quite sure if they had done enough to protect their staff and business. Also, as a qualified builder, Richard knew that time spent on Health and Safety would be better spent on the tools or running the jobs.

Nailed It Safety provided the right solution, coming aboard as Trent Building’s Health and Safety Officer to run their entire safety programme. We provided a fixed-price, independently overseen Health and Safety package which has sorted their Health and Safety worries and given Richard and Amie more time to grow their business and build beautiful houses.


 “Chris offers a fantastic service running our Health and Safety programme. The fixed price is obviously a big help in keeping our costs down. It’s a weight off my shoulders knowing that our Health and Safety is looked after by someone who knows what he’s doing. And our audit scores have gone from below 60% to consistently hitting 95% in under 6 months. We will continue to use Chris at Nailed It Safety Solutions for our Health and Safety needs, and can definitely recommend them without hesitation to others.”
