Inbox: Emergency management

The Christchurch earthquakes, the most serious of which have struck in the middle of the working day, have reinforced the need to have good health and safety practices in place in the workplace.
This year’s annual seminar by the Auckland branch of the New Zealand Institute of Safety Management (NZISM) is appropriately themed Are you really prepared – emergency management before, during and after? and takes place on August 18 at the Ellerslie Events Centre. Although targeted at the health and safety sector it is open to everyone interested in any aspect of planning for an emergency.
The Auckland branch committee, with the support of sponsors 3M, Edenfx HSE Recruitment and Impac, is also launching two new awards, the ‘3M Auckland Practitioner of the Year Award’ and ‘The Practitioner Development Award’ both of which aim to recognise and develop health and safety management talent.
The latter award is designed to assist the development of knowledge and skills of either an existing practitioner or someone looking to move into the health and safety field. The prize includes subsidy towards recognised training programme and full career pack.
For more details on the seminar or awards visit the Auckland branch page at www.nzism.co.nz. NZISM helps its members develop their skills and knowledge as health and safety professionals within wide range of private, corporate and public sector organisations. It aims to reduce accidents and improve health, which benefits both business and the country’s economy. M
