If you are a HASANZ-registered health and safety professional, this is a WorkSafe recognised path for you to become a SafePlus Assessor.

You will learn and demonstrate the skills and knowledge needed to deliver the SafePlus Onsite Assessment and Advisory Service.

"I believe you’re not going to change until you can change behaviours...this assessment can do that."
