The Private Security Personnel Licensing Authority has recognised the value of HASANZ and our Member Associations.
The Private Security Personnel Licensing Authority has recognised the value of HASANZ and our Member Associations by concluding that:
- Health and safety auditors do not fit within the definition of private investigator in s 5 of the Act and accordingly are not required to be licensed or certified under the Act.
- Health and Safety professionals who are in the business of carrying out health and safety investigations are private investigators as defined by s 5 of the Act and, subject to the proviso below, should be licensed or certified with the PSPLA. This finding extends to health and safety investigator employees as defined in s13 of the Act.
- HASANZ and its member organisations are better placed than the PSPLA to regulate and have oversight of health and safety professionals. Therefore, any person who is on the HASANZ register or is a member of a HASANZ member organisation is not required to also hold a licence or certificate with PSPLA, and complaints against them for failing to do so will not be accepted by the Authority.
