Health & Safety

Embedding a culture of safety

Safety Outcomes

Embedding a safety mindset

We have multiple examples and different approaches we can discuss with you to achieve safety outcomes in order to:

  • Embed safe practice for specific or high risk areas
  • Improve incident and near miss reporting
  • Reduce compliance issues
  • Increase employee engagement in H&S
  • Enable managers to effectively lead safety
  • Ensure contractors are work-ready.

Safeguarding the wellbeing of your people

Rather than just talking about wellbeing in a theoretical way, equip your people with the tools and techniques they need to better manage stress, take care of their own wellbeing, recognise and report bullying or harassment, and look out for the welfare and wellbeing of others.  

The productivity benefits of a happy, healthy workforce are huge, so let’s make a difference to the wellbeing in your workplace.

Optimism’s team are really collaborative; we always felt like they ‘got it’ and we were all on the same page. We’ve had great feedback from our learners who say that the blended approach has made the new workshops far more engaging and they feel more confident as a result.

Senior Business Advisor, MPI
Optimism have helped us take some very complicated regulatory requirements and express these in interesting, fun, interactive and easy-to-understand training courses. As the main gateway to New Zealand, various regulators review our training programmes to make sure we are communicating security, health and safety, fire evacuation and biosecurity requirements clearly to all Airport users. There has universally been a high level of comfort and confidence expressed in the training courses Optimism team have developed, and we are very pleased with the end outcomes.
Head of Operations Risk & Assurance, Auckland Airport
I love the app because it’s so engaging and easy to use. It will certainly get the consistency across our business that we need and I can see accountability with our leaders increasing as well.
Learning & Development Business Partner, Hynds
Just want to pass on my personal thanks to you for all your work on creating a great learning module. There has been positive feedback with learners saying the way the module was structured into small bites helped them focus on each section; the presenter was engaging; liked the use of real staff to describe day to day work situations; and an engaging model that makes you think about everyday work activities.
