Announcing the 2019 New Zealand Workplace Health & Safety Awards – recognise excellence in health, safety and wellbeing

by Criminal Lawyers Sydney George Sten & Co

Health and safety is full of unsung heroes and great ideas. It’s an industry of passionately teams and individuals who are dedicated to improving the health, safety and wellbeing of the people they are responsible for.

It’s time to celebrate your achievements and recognise your top performers by entering the 2019 New Zealand Workplace Health & Safety Awards.

There are a range of individual and organisational categories to enter, covering all aspects of health, safety and wellbeing. The finalists and winners will be celebrated at a Gala dinner and awards ceremony at SKYCITY Convention Centre in Auckland on 28 May.

Presented by Safeguard in association with WorkSafe New Zealand, these awards are New Zealand’s only nationwide all-sector health and safety awards. They are easy to enter, and entry is free.


Why Enter?


  • OPPORTUNITY FOR REFLECTION:The act of writing and submitting an entry is an opportunity to pause, put day-to-day matters to one side, and reflect on what has worked well over the last year or so, and the lessons learned. This process of critical analysis is valuable in evaluating your strengths (and ongoing challenges) in health and safety - and may spur further improvements.


  • ENGAGEMENT:Finalists and winners have the opportunity to acknowledge and reward the efforts of the teams and individuals involved, which is an opportunity to reinforce key messages to staff, customers and others across your supply chain around health and safety engagement.


  • PUBLIC RECOGNITION OF GOOD WORK:The successful initiatives or personal qualities of all finalists are acknowledged publicly at the gala dinner in front of a large audience of influential experts, executives and politicians. Further acknowledgement occurs as part of a post-awards media campaign.


  • NETWORKING AND LEARNING:Finalist or not, the gala dinner provides great learning and networking opportunities for people at all levels, from frontline workers to directors.
