It is with our pleasure we invite you to join the Safety Charter in celebrating our 10th Anniversary at the Mentally Safe Work Conference at the Addington Events Centre on Thursday the 29th of June, 2023.
Meet the Speakers
Our International & local presenters:
The Mentally Safe Work Conference aims to provide a framework for understanding the challenges of psychosocial safety, and what practical steps organisations can take to improve both their procedures and outcomes.
The Safety Charter is excited to bring a world class conference to the South Island and give the opportunity for industry professionals to learn and understand the challenges of creating mentally safe work and mentally safe workplaces. Presenters come from a diverse range of backgrounds and industries and will provide delegates with a solid understanding of both the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ to create safer, thriving, and more productive work.
Mentally Safe Work Conference delegates will hear from experts on developing an integrated intervention approach, practical case study examples, WorkSafe perspective, as well as legal obligations and how technology can be utilised. This conference is for any organisation or individual who are looking for guidance as they navigate their mentally safe workplace journey.
The Mentally Safe Work Conference is part of the Charter’s 10-year Anniversary celebrations, which features a Celebration Dinner dinner on Thursday night. All conference delegates, past and present Charter members, and anyone with an interest in the Charter are warmly invited to attend. Hear and share stories from the early days, learn about the challenges overcome, and honour our 10-year members.
