Health and Safety Professional
Advanced Safety
Canterbury Region


Advanced Safety specialises in supporting national project management companies and construction businesses throughout New Zealand.

I am founder of the Business Leaders New Zealand, the Health and Safety Professionals New Zealand and the Director and Principal Consultant of Advanced Safety. I am a qualified, highly experienced health and safety professional that provides practical advice and improvement plans designed to take away the guesswork and to empower future leaders.

Based in Christchurch I have been involved with the Canterbury Rebuild since the very beginning, assisting construction businesses of all shapes and sizes with their health and safety documentation and practices. I eventually became a national health and safety manager for a state owned enterprise and later launched Advanced Safety. My moto is 'keep health and safety simple'. It has served me well, as I now assist businesses throughout New Zealand.

Advanced Safety's mission is to be the most professional, creative and helpful health and safety consultancy in the country. One way in which we are achieving this is through the LinkedIn group's I created in late 2016. The Business Leaders New Zealand and the Health and Safety Professionals New Zealand groups are aimed at creating a space to share ideas, current hurdles and individual successes. I'm proud to say that both groups have flourished, with the Health and Safety Professionals holding its inaugural national conference in October 2018.

I bring with me a tonne of fresh ideas, a positive outlook and a professionalism that will invigorate your leadership team and business.

"I had the pleasure of meeting Matt during the commencement of one of our projects. Throughout the project Matt was not only approachable and contactable but displayed exceptional knowledge and experience within his role for health and safety.

Matt not only conducted site auditing in a professional manner but provided constructive feedback. Where matters required follow up he gave information and guidance to ensure workers understood the reasoning behind the need for each action.

I would have no issue in recommending Matt as an external consultant for health and safety."
