Pia Carpenter GradNZISM, DipOSH, NEBOSH IGC, BA(Psych)

Health and Safety Practitioner
Hands on Safety Ltd
Bay of Plenty Region


I have a Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety and the international NEBOSH General Certificate in which I achieved 'Distinction.  I am a Graduate Member of NZISM and have over 14 years of experience in health and safety.  I am based in Tauranga, but I am able to support clients within the Bay of Plenty and Waikato regions - or nationally via remote working.

When I saw a need for businesses to have access to a consultant who could give reliable, practical, and pragmatic health and safety advice and solutions, tailored to their business I foundered my own very successful company.

I have a background in psychology with an insight into how human factors affect behaviour.  I am a firm believer that systems and processes should always be useful for and support the end-user (you and your workers), in keeping everyone safe!

I can help demystify H&S by advising clients on what they actually need to ensure their OHS obligations are met, and on how to improve performance in a way that is simple, pragmatic and supports the business. 

With experience across construction, civil infrastructure, silviculture, waste management, warehousing, heavy transport, and manufacturing industries I have an understanding of the true operational environments many businesses and their workers face.
