Helping our clients grow and prosper

Safe T Works Taupo is owned and operated by Paula Nordstrom, who started the business in 2003.


Paula moved to Taupo in 2001 from the South Island and took an administration position in a Forestry Harvesting company. Having some previous experience in Health & Safety and looking for an added challenge, helped the company achieve ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices (WSMP) Tertiary accreditation, in turn saving the company a significant amount of money. Paula saw the benefits of these savings for high levy industries and set about to develop a simple and effective Health & Safety system that met the criteria and was easy to use for the not so paperwork orientated.

Paula believes a Health & Safety system is more effective if the people using it understand what is required to be completed to maintain compliance and why. Safe T Works can assist your business as little or as much as you want or need.  We now develop & monitor Health & Safety systems for a wide variety of industries that include Geothermal, Oil & Gas, Earthworks, Forestry, Crane Operations, Agriculture & transport.
