I’m thrilled to be a part of the Canterbury Safety Charter team, where I have taken on a pivotal role in a transformative project where we are actively engaging with Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) across New Zealand.
I am Tammy Alexander, a health and safety enthusiast with over 25 years of experience. My passion has always been to ensure the well-being of individuals regardless of their workplaces, and this is the driving force behind my career.
The SME Engagement Project recognises the unique challenges that SMEs face when it comes to health, safety and wellbeing, these businesses play an integral role in our local economy, employing countless workers who in turn contribute significantly to our community’s well-being through engagement ie sport, music, arts etc. However, as an SME they often lack access to the necessary resources and guidance to ensure a level of safety standards within their operations.
Our focus is on bridging the gap between common-sense health, safety and wellbeing practices and the often-overwhelming documentation required for compliance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.
As the Safety Charter Project Engagement Lead, my commitment is to foster a culture of change and I firmly believe that collaboration and understanding can be a catalyst for improving health, safety and wellbeing practices. I believe I can contribute to a safer, healthier work environment, in particular the SME sector where support and engagement is much needed.
We invite you to participate in a short survey to enable us to support you and your business in your health, safety and wellbeing journey, please contact Tammy on firstname.lastname@example.org or 027 250 9288.
