SafeSkills HSR Conference, presented by Safeguard, is a one-day event that will assist HSRs to develop the core skills they need to be more effective in their role in representing their fellow workers and increasing worker engagement and participation.

In its 7th year, SafeSkills is taking place in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington and Christchurch.

To foster an interactive learning environment, and to encourage attendee involvement, SafeSkills is delivered using a mix of workshop-style and case study sessions.

Take the lead and send your HSRs to SafeSkills or attend with them and apply the learnings on the day.

The SafeSkills HSR Conference is an ideal opportunity to develop the presence and value of those focused on the health and safety of your business while creating a safer workplace for everyone.

'As a new HSR this conference was helpful to look more deeply into what it means to be an HSR and how we can influence HSW in our workplace. Thanks!'
