She has written extensively on these subjects, including compiling research reports for New Zealand and overseas public and private sector organisations in areas such as regulating and complying with employment and OHS law and OHS issues in the agricultural, construction, ICT, forestry, mining, fishing, service sectors and SME sectors.

This highly respected panel of OHS thought-leaders will consider the positive impact mental health and wellbeing have on workers (respectful & collaborative environment, improved work/life balance); and on the business (improved productivity, employer of choice).
The panel will present local and international research on workplace trends and what has/hasn’t worked and helpful guidelines on workplace policies/processes; what it takes to have a good day; followed by a case study workshop.
