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.
