As one of the newest members of the Safety Charter Board I am honoured to be part of an enthusiastic team wanting to drive continuous improvement in health and safety.
 
To provide you with a bit of background on who I am, I have been involved in health and safety for over 17 years predominantly in industrial and construction environments.  My current role is with Downer as a Senior Health and Safety Advisor and lead a team of four staff across the South Island so I get to enjoy spending time travelling around the mainland.
 
One of the key issues challenging our corner of the industry currently is traffic management and negotiating our way around new requirements, risk assessment improvements and encouraging new innovations to improve the safety of our staff working on the road.
 
With the triple fatality in our industry earlier this year in the Waikato region reviewing how we protect people on the roads has never been more important to ensure we learn from this tragedy and prevent further deaths.
What I find heartening is seeing businesses within the industry working together along with NZTA to ensure there is a unified approach and learnings can be shared.
 
This is also one of the strengths of our Safety Charter where we see businesses, employee representatives and health and safety professionals work together, discussing health and safety and sharing information so we can drive continuous improvement across the industry.
 
Recently the Safety Charter Board have been working on a strategy to ensure that we have direction going forward, is sustainable and is relevant in our ever-changing landscape and I am excited with the progress that has been made so far.  I am sure I speak for all of our board members that we are looking forward to being able to share this strategy with you in the near future.
 
To play your part in the success of this Safety Charter I encourage you to attend events, get involved and share ideas.  Ensure when you do attend events please say hello to me, I look forward to meeting you all.
