Glen Coleman GradDip OSH, Diploma of Quality Auditing

Health and Safety Professional
Hancock Forest Management
Bay of Plenty Region


I have a strategic focus, strong leadership and technical skills, passion, and drive to achieve exceptional outcomes.

Competencies developed working as a serious harm investigator for the regulator and through such projects as the construction of the Te Mihi Geothermal Power Station and working for Hancock Forest Management (NZ) Ltd have enhanced my skills and tools for creating a safety culture of ownership, accountability, and integrity. I have a focus on achieving a high level of health and safety outcomes by setting clear expectations and strategies for companies, contractors, and individuals.

I have a wide range of investigation and compliance expertise, which I gained through the process of investigating industrial incidents and fatalities for the NZ Department of Labour (OSH), MBIE.  In the private sector, I am very pleased to say that with the hard work that we are doing with our contractors and the safety initiatives that I have initiated there has been a significant improvement in our TIFR over the last four years.

I have recently been appointed to the Board of the Forest Industry Safety Council (FISC) by the Forest Owners Association as I have a wealth of Health and Safety experience and expertise. Therefore, I will add practical governance value to FISC.
