Chris Brosnan

Chris is the founder and Director of Nailed It Safety. Chris was formerly in charge of Health and Safety for a leading Main Contractor, a position he held for many years. His role involved managing the safety of more than 25 worksites and a dozen contractors at any one time plus juggling the safety requirements of multiple clients. Chris is a member of New Zealand Institute of Safety Management (NZISM) for both professional development and accountability, and he is well versed in the legislative and best practice requirements of safety in construction.

When he’s not helping clients, Chris is either spending time in the great outdoors or at home with his young family. He has a decent sized vege garden and is wildly passionate about New Brighton, which he reckons is Christchurch’s best beach (sorry Sumner). A genuine good sort, Chris is also active in his community and church, and likes to lend a hand anyway he can.
