What we do

The Business Leaders' Health and Safety Forum is a coalition of business and government leaders committed to improving the performance of workplace health and safety in New Zealand. Our focus is to make workplaces safer by growing world-class CEO safety leadership in New Zealand, and by leveraging the combined skill, influence and resources of members. The Forum was launched in 2010 by Prime Minister John Key with just under 100 members, and in ten years has grown to 365 members who are CEOs, Managing Directors, or Country Heads of New Zealand organisations.
