The Puataunofo programme is a workplace health and safety education initiative focused on delivering key health and safety messages to Pacific workers.

We commissioned Pacific Perspectives Limited to undertake an evaluation of the Puataunofo programme. The aim of the evaluation was to document and evaluate the effectiveness of the project.

Focus groups were held with the programme’s Steering Group and WorkSafe staff, and with staff who have participated in the programme from Ports of Auckland and Spencer Henshaw.

The authors found that the Puataunofo Programme is characterised by a strong alignment to the strategic direction of WorkSafe and made a range of recommendations for further supporting its activities.
