We very much appreciate all your expert help and advice and the clear and practical way in which you have presented all the manuals and documents for our H&S plan. I feel we now have our Operations Manager onboard and better guided to help us ensure H&S compliance for the rest of the team.

Jeni Thornborough, Events Contracts Adviser Nelson City Council, Opera in the Park 2020
Andreas at Worksafe Smart has provided a health and safety management system that covers all the legally necessary areas yet is simple enough to be usable by the client. In an initial meeting he ensured we knew how to easily use the health and safety management system. He has continued to provide valuable health and safety support through giving reliable advice and putting processes in place when we have been confronted with new health and safety challenges. I would highly recommend Andreas to other small business requiring a thorough and usable health and safety management system.
Ian Phillips, EASY TRAIL SERVICES LTD
Thank you so very much for all the information you have given us. Health & safety is important for everyone, and we will recommend you as a consultant to others we know would benefit from your experience
Margaret Bartlett, ASSOCIATION OF ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONALS NEW ZEALAND
We looked at a few different health and safety companies before deciding to work with WorkSafe Smart. We’re really glad we did as we found Andreas’s approach practical, friendly and easy to understand. He helped us develop a straightforward plan that was specific to our business yet still simple and easy to implement. He also completed a training session with staff which was very well received. It is reassuring to know that Andreas is there for support with health and safety matters if needed.
Sarah & Kelvin Atkinson, ATKINSONS’S INNOVATIVE INTERIORS
It is without any hesitation that I would recommend the highly professional services of Worksafe Smart to any business or organisation. Andreas was excellent to work with he provided a fully comprehensive, yet no nonsense policy tailor made to our specific needs along with full support required for ensuring our on-going well-being and compliance.
Lloyd Harwood, Community Arts Manager – ARTS COUNCIL NELSON,
I highly recommend Andreas as a Health & Safety Consultant. We engaged his services as part of our new two days festival here in the Nelson Tasman region – he was an essential part of our team in terms of delivering an enjoyable and safe event under challenging circumstances. He was a calm but diligent presence who carried out his duties effectively whilst also recognising the dynamic environment we were operating in. He produced a very thorough Health & Safety plan, happily carried out adjustments as the event changed and then was our Onsite Health & Safety Office throughout the entire event. I am proud to say that we had a new event over two days, in two challenging locations, with over 10,000 people and numerous different activities operating yet we had ZERO incidents thanks to the hard work of Andreas and the wider events team. People often scoff at paying money for Health & Safety but when it comes to protecting the integrity of your company/project, offering all your customers a safe experience and having a wise counsel on-hand to walk you through the process – there is no one better than Andreas Gabriel.

“Again it was amazing to have you on board. Very happy we engaged you and the team loved having you around for both the work you did and the good energy you brought.”
Toby Burrows – Festival Director ‘BAY DREAMS NELSON’, Director ‘RHYTHM AND VINES’
I must say this is the first consulting invoice in my life for H&S I pay with a smile! It was great to work with your attitude of “Just do it!”, helping us pulling things off in a safe way without being overly cautious as you obviously realized at the get go we are caring of our guests and a safe event and are always open to sensible consulting … Pleasure working with you – one of the positive highlights of the event. Knowing H&S is “covered” for future events is a big relief.
Carsten Buschkuehle – Festival Director – LIFT OFF ABEL TASMAN, Tasman District
Many thanks for the visit and doing our Health and Safety work for us. It was very easy to understand it , with the format you have set out for us. We were very impressed by your service. I have recommended you to our friends.
Liz Hewitt – Director – ENVIROLINK LTD, Nelson
When faced with the daunting prospect of preparing a health and safety plan for our small but complex community performing arts hub, we turned to the team at Worksafe Smart for help. Andreas kept the process simple, understandable and manageable, liaising with us every step of the way to create a bespoke plan and system that has already proved it’s worth in keeping us and our community of users safe and supported in our wonderful new facility.
