About Us


We deliver simple safety and HR solutions giving you confidence and freedom to do wht you do best.

Simple. We tailor our products to your business and how you operate. Our solutions are simple and easy to understand. We also provide ongoing support to take away your concerns over compliance and meeting your legal obligations and to make sure you stay on top of your obligations. We also offer online support making it simple to log activities and to manage your safety.

Confidence. Though our simple solutions and our ongoing partnership providing you that background support, you have confidence that your safety and HR requirements are being monitored and addressed.

Freedom. Simplicity and confidence gives you the freedom to focus on your business free from concerns about those safety, HR and legal concerns - because we’ve got your back!


We use a risk based approach to safety management.  Identifying the hazard is the first step, we need to identify the vulnerability to harm we face from those hazards, how we will manage the risk and importantly take those actions that give assurance that risk is being managed.  We provide a range of services aimed at providing you with the assurance you need and to help you manage your safety risk and therefore your safety.


Navigating your way through all that employment legislation can be confusing and HR can be tricky to navigate. HR has several risks that can be costly if they go wrong. We provide HR services ranging from recruiting, employment agreements or help to sort out that problem employee, through to audits of your systems and processes to help you manage your manage your business.


Hauraki Safety and HR is based in Paeroa with easy access to clients in the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Thames Coromandel and Hauraki areas.

I engaged Jim to provide me with my HR when I purchased my business. Sometimes I could just hug him! He keeps things simple for me and gives me confidence that I am doing the right things. I understand the importance to receive HR advice that is professional and current with the latest NZ employment rules, so it is nice having him in my back pocket when I need his help. He is so easy to deal with, nothing is ever a problem and his advice is honest, even if I don’t want to hear it. I am getting from him exactly what I need. He is definitely worth the investment.
