Exigent offers a number of services
Safety Reporting Systems
Exigent will help you ensure that health and safety events in your workplace are properly managed. With Directors required to demonstrate that they understand health and safety throughout the organisation, recording and reporting the right information is critical.
Safety Management Systems
Exigent develops simple, easy-to-use safety management systems to make sure your business is safe and compliant. Our safety management systems are being used by more than 3,500 customers throughout the country and because they were developed in conjunction with WorkSafe New Zealand, you can have confidence that they meet all regulatory requirements.
GIS Mapping Solutions
Exigent provides interactive mapping solutions for any business with a significant geographic footprint. If your business has anything to do with the land, Exigent’s Geographic Information System interface lets you show all relevant information on a printable map. This includes key risks, infrastructure (tracks, bridges, culverts, etc.), land management units, boundaries, terrain features, key safety equipment, and lots more.
A selection of our work
Beef + Lamb New Zealand
Farm Safety Management System
Exigent Risk Management (previously QSI) were contracted by Beef + Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) to develop a Farm Safety Management System specifically for New Zealand sheep and beef farmers. The systems were designed to be simple and easy to implement and, because they were developed in conjunction with WorkSafe New Zealand, farmers have confidence that the system meets all the legal requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act.
As part of B+LNZ’s farm safety support programme, Exigent conducts workshops for farmers throughout the country. Farmers are walked through the system and how to use it, and practical examples provided on how to make the system work in their own farming operation. Farmers’ duties and responsibilities are also explained, including how to meet their obligations to employees, contractors, and visitors.
More than 2,500 sheep and beef farmers across New Zealand have received a Farm Safety Management System from B+LNZ developed by Exigent, with more than 97% positive feedback from workshop attendees. The Farm Safety Management Systems and workshops are fully funded by B+LNZ levies and therefore available to all sheep and beef farmers. Interested farmers should contact their B+LNZ Extension Manager for more information.
Federated Farmers of New Zealand
Farm Safety Management System
Exigent Risk Management (previously QSI) were contracted by Federated Farmers of New Zealand (FFNZ) to develop a Farm Safety Management System applicable to all farm types. As with B+LNZ, the FFNZ system is simple, easy to implement and fully compliant with the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act.

The FFNZ package can be purchased from their online shop and includes:
– All information and systems to facilitate compliance under the Health and Safety Act.

– Safe work procedures for the arable, dairy, and meat and fibre industry groups.

Safety Management System
Exigent Risk Management developed a Safety Management System (SMS) for Bayswater Vehicles for its dealerships in Hawke’s Bay. The system helps Bayswater ensure that they meet their health and safety obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act.
Exigent conducted a Safety Risk Assessment of both the Hastings and Napier sites and designed a simple and easy-to-implement SMS that meets the unique requirements of the business. The SMS covers all aspects of Bayswater’s operations from the office, to the dealership, right through to the workshop.
It includes a safety reporting system that enables all safety related activities and incidents to be recorded, managed, and reported upon simply and easily on smartphones, tablets, and laptops/ desktops. This information is consolidated into regular reports for the Board, thereby helping ensure that the company’s Directors meet their due diligence obligations around health and safety in the workplace.
Exigent’s safety management systems are simple, easy to implement and, because they apply a risk-based approach, they focus on what’s important. Please contact us for more information.
