Occupational Health & Safety Service

The health and safety consultants at Safety First have extensive local and international health and safety experience. Our knowledgeable team will help your company understand and manage health, safety and wellness risks, as well as providing legal compliance.

Our consultants understand the complexities of New Zealand’s occupational health and safety legislation and the way health and safety issues can be understood and controlled in the workplace. Our international experience brings a different approach to managing health and safety procedures, with a focus on practical, workable solutions.


Our health and safety consultants are experts on using health and safety policy to create robust, workable health and safety procedures. Your Safety First health and safety advisor can explain how an effective health and safety management system can reduce the workload your human resources team face.

We’re here to help. Talk to us about your organisation’s occupational health and safety policy, and how we can help you provide better safety at work.
