A SHOWCASE OF HEALTH AND SAFETY
Worksafe has just released the first in a series of webinars with CEO Nicole Rosie in discussion with prominent CEOs in New Zealand on what health and safety in the workplace means to them.
Rosie told Management the purpose of these webinars is to help leaders realise that health and safety is mainstream and should be as much a part of any business discussion as financial risk or commodity risk might be, because leaders need to have that same currency on health and safety practice.
The second purpose is to get people to understand that health and safety is not an extra and to showcase CEOs who put health and safety at the centre of everything they do.
She says the webinars highlight that health and safety is about people who are highly engaged with their team, because they care, and only high engagement can build trust, but first you must care for people. It’s about understanding the challenges they face and working with them.
The first webinar features NZTE chief executive Peter Chrisp and the second will feature Auckland lawyer and the founder and chair of New Zealand Asian Leaders and of the Super diversity Centre, Mai Chen.
