The 2024 Health and Safety Representatives Conference is a full-day development event, to be held at the Shed 6 Wellington on Thursday 06 June 2024.

 Please note: There is no charge to attend this conference.

The focus of the 2024 Health and Safety Representatives Conference is on Worker Engagement, Participation and Representation.

Join us at the conference as we explore how the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 emphasises collaboration between workers, their representatives, and organisations to actively identify, manage, and enhance the management of risks arising from work.


Frontline workers possess invaluable insights into hazards that impact their health, safety, and wellbeing. Fostering connection between those on the ground and decision-makers within organisations improves outcomes. We will explore mechanisms that empower workers to actively participate in managing their work environment.


Don’t miss this opportunity to gain insights, share experiences and learn how Health and Safety Representatives play a crucial role in promoting engagement and participation within workplaces.


We will then celebrate the fantastic mahi our H&S Reps have done in the last year across the motu by recognising the individual and team finalists for Health and Safety Representative of the Year and announcing the overall winners for 2024.
