Sector Groups

These Sector Group organisations like ShopCare, are official industry bodies supporting best practice Health, Safety and Wellness actions in the workplace. All are funded by a mix of government grants and industry support. Our shared purpose is to work with all levels of industry to reduce harm and create safer workplaces for everyone.


The Health and Safety Association of New Zealand (HASANZ) is the umbrella organisation representing workplace health and safety professions in New Zealand.
An incorporated society, HASANZ aims to raise professional standards across the sector whilst connecting businesses with trusted health and safety professionals.


The Business Leaders' Health and Safety Forum is a coalition of business and government leaders committed to improving the performance of workplace health and safety in New Zealand. Our focus is to make workplaces safer by growing world-class CEO safety leadership in New Zealand, and by leveraging the combined skill, influence and resources of members. 


The Government Health and Safety Lead is a small team tasked with providing practical support to chief executives and senior leaders of government agencies to enable their personal leadership of health and safety for the benefit of all New Zealanders.
