Practitioner to Professional Award

By NZISM Secretary


This year NZISM is launching the inaugural Practitioner to Professional Award. This award will be given to one accredited NZISM Practitioner member every year. The award will include a year’s complimentary membership to NZISM with the many benefits associated with membership and a 12-month mentorship with a Certified Professional NZISM member.

The aim of the award is to acknowledge the mahi required of our accredited Practitioners who are studying to achieve NZISM Professional level accreditation. By gifting membership and providing a mentorship for the year, we hope to encourage and support the transition from NZISM Practitioner to NZISM Professional.

Dan Davis CertProfNZISM will be our mentor for the winning applicant.


Applicants must be a current accredited NZISM Practitioner (PractNZISM) who is undertaking study of a minimum level 6 Diploma in OHS, either PT or FT for the year the award is chosen.


Simply tell us in 300 words or less why you believe professional status is important for health and safety at work in New Zealand. All entries must be submitted to by 28th February 2021. The winner will be notified by email and will be promoted out to members in the NZISM newsletter. Good luck to all the applicants!
