Patricia Allen GradDipOSH

Health and Safety Practitioner
Meridian Energy Ltd
Canterbury Region


I bring both a strategic and frontline practice perspective to my work in Wellbeing.  Recently introducing CARE teams into our Wellbeing Framework allows employees at Meridian to bring their whole selves to work, which also provides a sense of belonging, and inclusion to our workplace.  I work closely with equipping managers to support the Wellbeing of their people which ensures that the mental health challenges experienced by their people is carefully managed using a series of helpful tools.

I am very passionate about not only the safety but also the Wellbeing of all people.  “If we can support our people to bring their whole selves to work without discrimination, judgement or stigma is where we can really make a difference".  


My safety experience includes, both operational and corporate duties.  My operational experience has been gained in the Hydro Electricity Generation area and Retail sector.
