New Zealand’s biggest health and safety event beckons

Peter Bateman, editor, Safeguard magazine in New Zealand, explains why you might like to take a busman’s holiday to New Zealand, and take in 2016 Safeguard National Health and Safety Conference in Auckland.

The Health and Safety at Work Act will come in to force in New Zealand on 4 April 2016, bringing challenges and opportunities for all those responsible for worker health and safety.

One of the key opportunities is to use health and safety to influence positive change across all levels of organisations. To achieve this, we who are charged with driving health and safety need to become effective leaders, influencers and communicators. There’s a challenge!

The 2016 Safeguard National Health and Safety Conference will aim to inspire delegates to move further along that journey. But to do that – we’re going to ask something of you.

We’re going to ask you not just to attend, but to actively participate. To learn from, and share with, others at the conference. To challenge yourself to think critically about what you can do differently and the changes you can make. Because together, with the expertise, knowledge and passion of the whole health and safety community, we can make a real difference.

The challenge has been laid down. Are you willing to take it up?

The 2016 programme is available to download now.

New for 2016

We are pleased to offer separately bookable workshops with our international keynotes, taking place on the day following the conference. Each half day workshop costs only $395+GST to attend. Spaces are strictly limited so book now to avoid disappointment.

Workshop 1: Practical Positive Investigation – Dr Drew Rae, Griffith University (Australia)
