Your health, safety & wellness update

We are loving our new Christchurch premises at 49 Carlyle Street in Sydenham. Our training clients are enjoying our purpose-built training room which boasts a lovely outlook to the Port Hills! If you're yet to visit us and would like to pop in - the map below will show you where we are.


Hot Pie July

Thank you to everyone who entered our Hot Pie July competition. We received over 75 entries which was fantastic! 

We would have loved to have warmed everyone's bellies who entered but unfortunately could only visit a few companies each Friday. Below are some of the photos of us out and about. To view the full album, please click here.

A big thank you needs to go to Hillyers Pies who supplied us with the most delicious hot pies each Friday!

Did you know TriEx is a National Provider?

Our head office is based in Christchurch with a full team of dedicated qualified professionals ready to assist you with your health & safety requirements.

We have mobile units covering the Canterbury and Auckland regions which can help companies who may not have a quiet office space available or many team members spread over various sites.

TriEx also partner with many health specialists throughout New Zealand to provide our clients with a nationwide service. Many of our North Island clients find it more cost effective and efficient to pay for one of our Christchurch based safety and occupational hygiene team to travel to their site than pay for a local service.

If you have any queries in regards to national provision, please contact Sarah Jimmink on (03) 343 2997 or

Immunity Support

The body's first line of defence against nasty bugs is your immune system

Immunity Support contains three powerful herbs and two powerful nutrients. Echinacea root extract which supports the immune system and the body’s defences. Olive Leaf extract — a potent antioxidant to fight the free radicals. Garlic extract which trials have shown that people who took it were less likely to contract season illnesses or recover faster if they did. Combined with these herbs is Vitamin C & Zinc, both which are proven to support immunity and the body’s capacity to fight seasonal illness.

  • Supports the immune system and the body’s defences
  • Potent immune support and antioxidant properties
  • Less likely to get seasonal illnesses
  • Support for faster recovery from seasonal illness
