Created as an incorporated society in 1972, the New Zealand Institute of Safety Management (NZISM) represents the interests of Generalist Health and Safety Practitioners and Professionals in New Zealand. Our members work in both private and public sector organisations across a wide selection of industry and commerce.
We also assist in determining standards for health and safety in New Zealand and consulting with the likes of the New Zealand Government via our association with the Health and Safety Association of New Zealand (HASANZ)
NZISM started as a collective of local branches and has grown into a nationally based organisation. Because of our history we recognise the importance of the individual practitioner/professional and emphasis this by helping our members to develop their skills and knowledge by means of our internationally aligned professional accreditation programme and its associated Continual Professional Development (CPD) programme. We support the programme with the provision of optional mentoring, regular local branch meetings, workshops and seminars. We assist those newly starting out in a career in health and safety through to those with many years experience seeking further advancement.
