Bridget Smaill is Head of Health, Safety and Wellbeing at BNZ. She joined the Bank 18months ago with a vision to embed health, safety and wellbeing into the ways of working rather than being viewed as a compliance or tick box activity. For the work she was named NZISM Health and Safety Practitioner of Year in May this year.
Bridget studied Law and Physical Education and moved from a focus in health promotion and road safety into health and safety six years ago. She has worked for a number of international companies, and more recently was a senior consultant in Health and Safety for KPMG.
