Health and Safety Association New Zealand


Scholarships & training

HASANZ scholarships are aimed at individuals currently working in health and safety, as well as those who wish to pursue a career in this field.


In 2024 HASANZ has four scholarship categories:

  • Health & Safety: for practitioners and health and safety representatives who want to upskill to a diploma or degree, as well as people wanting to specialise in health and safety by undertaking a bachelors degree or postgraduate qualification at a university.

  • Poutama: for Māori health and safety practitioners who want to take their skills to the next level.

  • Women in Safety: for female health and safety practitioners who are ready to upskill from a technical level into leadership and governance to influence health and safety leadership and governance practice in New Zealand.

  • Agriculture & Horticulture: to attract people to agriculture and horticulture, support specialisation through relevant qualifications, with a focus on the Bay of Plenty region, while keeping applications open to everyone regardless of location.

All enquiries should be directed to [email protected]

We have compiled a handy guide to tertiary workplace health and safety courses in New Zealand and Australia. This list intends to provide a helpful starting point for those looking for available courses. However, applications to study other tertiary qualifications in workplace health and safety that aren’t featured on this list are also accepted.
