APS Height Safety Story
At APS Health & Safety culture is integral to how we operate.
This story features one of APS proudest moments. We want to tell Sione's story here of how his role modelling and championing the APS Health & Safety Culture was acknowledged. Sione Lolohea took out the WorkSafe Safety Contribution Award in 2018 for leading and inspiring a dramatic culture change at APS Ltd.

The judges said it was great to see businesses empowering people like Sione to become leaders and true safety champions.
“As a role model for staff, Sione has made an invaluable contribution to health and safety culture at APS.”
After an early near miss, Sione has gone on to pave the way for a raft of improvements in the company’s safety culture, bringing a new level of realism and connection to the team’s height training. Sione has been instrumental in developing new safety products, including design improvements to roof anchors and APS’ PPE safety kits.
Here is a video produced at Sitesafe featuring Sione's Story as told by Sione Lolohea and APS GM David Karam.
