The Master Builders South Africa (MBSA) National Safety Competition (NSC) is the Flagship for Health And Safety in the Building Industry and culminates in a National Awards Ceremony in September each year.
Entry to the NSC is only by way of participation in the MBA's prestigious Regional Safety Competition with awards presented at our MBA Annual Dinners in the second half of each year. The Regional Competition is conducted using the same criteria as the MBSA Star Grading System.
Winners of the Competition, which has numerous categories for different sizes and type of projects, receive wide acclaim for their achievements but also enjoy the benefits of improved Health & Safety compliance on their building sites.
