HFESNZ is a founding member of HASANZ - the Health and Safety Association of New Zealand. HASANZ is an association of associations, with objectives to raise professional standards, grow professional excellence, industry advocacy, develop health and safety leadership and stakeholder engagement. These objectives align strongly with HFESNZ aims. HFESNZ representatives have actively contributed to the start-up of HASANZ, the inaugural and successful September 2016 HASANZ Conference and ongoing work on the development of the HASANZ Register – a national, online register of verified workplace health and safety professionals that includes human factors/ergonomics professionals. This register is due to go live in March 2018, and HFESNZ's Certified Professional Members are eligible to list on the HASANZ Register.
In 2017 HASANZ worked with PwC on the HASANZ Health and Safety Professionals Survey, learning about how businesses see NZ health and safety professionals and how we see ourselves.
