What knowledge and skills does a HSR need to achieve confidence, success and fulfilment in their role?

NZISM has outlined the capabilities we believe an HSR will need to confidently contribute towards healthier, safer outcomes in their workplace. The expectation is not that HSRs will have these capabilities when they begin their journey but, through development plans, coaching and training, strength in these areas can be built over time.

Creating a career pathway

22% of NZISM members started their OHS careers as an HSR - it is the first step on a proven career pathway for those who choose to follow it.

Acknowledging this, NZISM's proposed HSR capabilities have been developed from the INSHPO (International Network of Safety and Health Professional Organisations) Competency Framework. This means we can align HSR capabilities with those of an NZISM accredited Practitioner or Professional, making career progression smooth and seamless.

The workshop

With your input, these FREE workshops will not only inform but also enable us to test our assumptions. Direct feedback from members and HSRs operating on the frontline provide the opportunity for us to hone our HSR capability proposition.

Refreshments will be provided

Join us

We'd love as many members and HSRs to join us as possible. There are lots of great reasons to engage your HSRs and get them to come with you.

• Opportunity to network with other HSRs;
• Benefit from valuable informal training;
• Get a better picture about what good looks like;
• Have input into a national knowledge matrix that will have a significant impact on the way we support and train HSRs in the future.
