Adapt | Survive | Thrive

It is with sadness and disappointment that we have cancelled the 2020 Safeguard National Health and Safety Conference, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

It’s a difficult time for many of us in the event industry and cancelling an event that has taken months of painstaking preparation and development is never pleasant.

But, without a doubt, it’s the right decision.

 Even without the New Zealand government’s directive regarding mass gatherings, it’s a decision we would have made anyway. The health and safety of our attendees, speakers, sponsors and staff is our highest priority.


We will be working with our team over the coming weeks to process credits or refunds for registered attendees.

New Zealand Workplace Health & Safety Awards

We are still going ahead with our call for entries for the Awards with a slightly extended deadline of Wednesday 8 April.

Once entries have closed we will have a better idea of when the awards will be judged and presented. The Awards dinner and presentation will not take place as planned on the 9th of June and it is still very early to make a call on when this will take place.

Safeguard National Health & Safety Conference 2021

We have secured dates for the 2021 Safeguard Conference with the new dates being 1st and 2nd of June 2021.

Until then, we will Adapt, Survive, and Thrive, and see you again shortly.
