Karen Martin Grad Dip OHSM, ProfNZISM

Health and Safety Professional
Waikato Region


I am an experienced Health & Safety Professional with over 15 years’ experience of Health & Safety Management within MPI, DIA, NZDF, Department of Corrections, Private consultancy, and Local government.

I was a finalist in the category of Practitioner of the year Safeguard awards (2022) and an award winner with the M Bovis programme for the governance award (2022)

An assessment exercise using the Myers Biggs, psychological assessment tool determined that, I am an advocate.

•              Creative – think outside the box.

•              Insightful – These personalities know all too well that appearances can be misleading. Advocates strive to move beyond superficiality and seek out the deeper truths in life. This can give them an almost uncanny ability to understand people’s true motivations, feelings, and needs.

•              Principled – Advocates tend to have strong beliefs and values, particularly when it comes to matters of ethics. When Advocates talk about topics close to their heart, their conviction and heartfelt idealism can inspire and persuade even the sternest of sceptics.

•              Passionate – Advocates crave a sense of purpose in life. Rather than living on autopilot or sticking to t, Advocates are energized and impassioned by the beauty of their visions for the future.

•              Altruistic – People with this personality type aren’t happy to succeed at another person’s expense. Advocates want to use their strengths for the greater good, and they rarely lose sight of how their words and actions might affect others. In their heart of hearts, they want to make the world a better place, starting with the people around them
