WorkSafe New Zealand Chair in Health and Safety
The WorkSafe New Zealand Chair in Health and Safety aims to lift New Zealand’s health and safety performance through high quality research and teaching.
The WorkSafe New Zealand Chair in Health and Safety, funded by WorkSafe New Zealand, was established in line with WorkSafe’s strategic intention to enhance system leadership through growing effective partnerships to lift workforce capability.
The Chair leads the workplace health and safety programme at the University and builds capacity by developing the next generation of health and safety generalists through the Master of Health in workplace health and safety.
The Chair also engages with stakeholders across Aotearoa New Zealand including WorkSafe and other government agencies, professional associations, businesses, and employees.
The Wellbeing at Work hub
This engagement will be formalised through the creation of the Wellbeing at Work hub, enabling us to build an evidence base of what works in the New Zealand context of workplace health, safety and wellbeing, and develop programmes to build thriving workplaces, better work, and reduce harm.
