HASANZ Register goes live | IMPAC health and safety

30 July, 2018  |  News

The HASANZ Register was launched on Friday. It’s a national, online register of verified workplace health and safety professionals – the first of it’s kind in New Zealand.

With the Register, you can search for a workplace health and safety professional who matches your exact requirements. According to HASANZ, being listed on the Register is like having a warrant of fitness to practise as a workplace health and safety professional. Businesses can be confident that people on the HASANZ Register have met the standard of competence required by their professional association.

Four of IMPAC’s Health and Safety Specialists – Christel Fouche, Frank McCutcheon, Dan Davis, and Michelle Gillman – are on the Register.
