Gallagher Group operates within an environment of innovation and continuous improvement and we seek expert advice to ensure we don’t get complacent. We engaged the services of Steve Sharpe at a time we had ACC WSMP accreditation and with our own internal health and safety technical team. We did this to get a fresh perspective and to help provide the “Officers” of the organisation with the verification about our systems, under the due diligence duties in the HSW Act 2015.

Steve provided insight and areas of improvement that we are now implementing with our internal team. We have also continued to utilise Steve’s expertise to provide continued advice direct to myself as an Officer and to others within the organisation.

We would encourage other organisations, even those with their own internal health and safety personal, to consider getting a fresh perspective on their health and safety.

As the owners of a reasonably large Horse Breeding and Agitsment farm in the Waikato, it was extremely important for us to ensure both the safety of our employees and the safety of our client’s horses that were in our care and subsequently our responsibility. It was also necessary to ensure we were compliant to the new Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. With this in mind we employed the services of Steve Sharpe, who at the time was employed by Fegan & Co. Steve’s knowledge of the Health and Safety industry is vast and he has ensured that we meet all necessary H&S legal requirements as well as ensuring our individual needs had been met. Not only is Steve professional in his approach, he is very personable and extremely easy to deal with and we’d have no hesitation in recommending him to assist in all aspects of health and Safety, particularly in the rural sector.

About Me

Steve Sharpe - Consultant

I have over 20 years experience in Health and Safety, commencing in the quarry industry and then a wide range of sectors:

  • Manufacturing
  • Food processing
  • Pest control
  • Facilities Management
  • Transport

I have also been involved in Human Resources in various roles from recruitment, training, dismissals and redundancies. This experience has included situations such as:

  • Employee termination as unfit for duty,
  • Serious sexual assault allegations from one employee against another
  • Risks of self harm

In more recent times, I transitioned from being a manager within various companies to being a consultant for one of NZ's leading agricultural sector recruitment companies (Fegan & Co). 

I also see a significant gap in the NZ recruitment market from my own experience being recruited by companies and through agencies for a specialist recruiter in health and safety, with a working understanding of health and safety.

My business is based in the Waikato, but services all of New Zealand and other countries if my experience is suitable.
