I have been working in occupational health for almost 10 years with small and large businesses across Taranaki and I love my job. I acknowledge that the health and safety culture, workplace risks, and health of workers is unique within each business. I believe that working with people to develop health and safety services is paramount. Doing so ensures that the right health and safety services are prescribed and as a result, there is a practical approach that can bring benefits the health and safety of the workers. I firmly believe that the way we work affects our health and equally, our health affects the way we work.
Being an Occupational Health Nurse gives me the opportunity to learn, support, educate and protect the health of people within their workplace. Understanding the significance of the connection between worker health and healthy work is fundamental to my role as an Occupational Health Nurse.
As the current Taranaki NZOHNA President (New Zealand Occupational Health Nurses Association), I regularly meet with a skilled Occupational Health Nurses and collectively we continue to learn about best practice within the Health and Safety industry. With the collaboration of the group, I am able to access shared knowledge and skills which in turn benefits the companies I engage with.
I welcome any Health and Safety inquiries and I am able to travel to your work site and / or welcome you to visit Working for Health. I provide various health and safety services included but not limited to; health risk assessments, health monitoring, biological monitoring, rehabilitation, return to work plans, ergonomic workstation assessments, wellness initiatives, fatigue management, injury management and immunisations.
