HASANZ represents diverse organisations with a shared purpose

We are:
  • an association of associations
  • a truly representative body for workplace health and safety professions in New Zealand
  • a trusted voice for health and safety professionals
  • a first point of contact for business leaders and government on workplace health and safety matters
  • an expert advisory group to guide effective health and safety policy.

Establishing a representative body for health and safety professionals was a commitment in the  Government’s Working Safer package of reforms (2013) developed in response to the findings of the Taskforce on Workplace Health and Safety (2012).

A step change in workplace health and safety performance in New Zealand requires us to work collaboratively to help drive effective solutions.
