The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of New Zealand presented awards to Craig Smith and Peter Bateman at its Wellington conference on 5 September.

Craig Smith, former Independent Chair for HASANZ, was acknowledged for his outstanding leadership and guidance in workplace health and safety at a crucial time. The HFESNZ citation reads:

"Craig recognised and upheld each of the professions, ensuring that his actions strengthened and supported both the individuals doing this work, and the collective work of many within each organisation. We recognise and applaud his commitment to nurturing, stretching and challenging each profession, including our own."

Peter Bateman, editor of Safeguard magazine and Safeguard Update newsletter was also acknowledged. The citation reads:

"Safeguard magazine has been central to the advancement of health and safety in New Zealand. Editor Peter Bateman has consistently supported the work of the professional bodies, including the HFESNZ, and helped reinforce important initiatives that have made a genuine difference to people at work. He has also questioned and tested us - as a journalist should - but, uniquely, has done so constructively."
