SafeSkills Conference 2020

SafeSkills, presented by Safeguard, is a one-day event that will assist HSRs to develop the core skills they need to be more effective in their role in increasing worker engagement and participation.

Taking place in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Hamilton, the programme will help your HSRs to:

  • Know the talk – understand safety concepts and jargon
  • Develop communication skills – give them the confidence to talk to an audience, be heard and appreciated
  • Tackle difficult conversations – provide tools and tips to have productive conversations
  • Start a meaningful conversation around mental health and wellbeing
  • We will also hear from two HSRs who will share their health and safety journeys and the opportunities and rewards that can come from being an HSR.

    To foster an interactive learning environment, and to encourage attendee involvement, Safeskills will be delivered using a mix of workshop-style, case study and plenary sessions.

    The SafeSkills Conference is an ideal opportunity to develop the presence and value of those focused on the health and safety of your business while creating a safer workplace for you and your colleagues.

    We look forward to welcoming you to SafeSkills 2020.
