Wellbeing, health and safety

Workplace wellbeing, health and safety continues to be a focus for MBIE. MBIE’s online wellbeing hub, Te Puna Ora, offers practical information on managing wellbeing, along with access to support services to those within the organisation.

To create a workplace culture that prioritises wellbeing, health and safety, we make sure our people have ongoing engagement and learning opportunities. This year, we:

  • Conducted 29 webinars to help employees understand their own and their team member’s wellbeing needs.
  • Trained 98 floor wardens, 58 first-aiders, and 102 wellbeing, health and safety representatives across the organisation.
  • Offered learning modules about safety and wellbeing to boost engagement, where 96% of people completed the staff safety and wellbeing module, 96% completed the security module, and 86% of leaders completed the leader’s safety and wellbeing module.
  • Introduced the Wellbeing Health and Safety Representative training framework, which offers a pathway to the National Certificate in Workplace Health and Safety for interested representatives.
