Businesswise, we know that COVID-19 has impacted on health and safety professionals in different ways. Some are extremely busy, while work has all but dried up for others. One thing is for sure – the pandemic has focused attention on the importance of managing workplace health and safety. It’s timely to remind businesses that the HASANZ Register is the place to find qualified health and safety advisers and the help they need to meet Alert Level 2 requirements, as well as point people to the excellent guidance and resources being produced by the Ministry of Health, WorkSafe and industry associations, Also, it’s worth checking out the HASANZ COVID-19 resources on our website. As part of the response to COVID-19 we can promote the broader role of expert health and safety professionals in workplaces – something that will endure when we return to “normal”.
