Michael Bates

Health and Safety Practitioner
HSE Global
Canterbury Region


I'm practical, experienced and have worked with, and in, all levels of organisations big and small. I can work with you to solve problems and I won't disappear after the work is done. 


I am not going to sell you an off-the-shelf solution nor am I going to tell you that you need reams of paperwork. What I will do is help you find ways to empower you and your workforce to build a workplace where people want to work.


Let’s stop talking about compliance and start talking about how to create an innovative, efficient, and engaging organisation where everyone can do great work.
