Our Amazing Team

 

Isabelle Pryde – Founder

Isabelle Pryde is the founder and managing director of Safestaff. Originally from the Netherlands, she arrived in Whangarei, and moved to Southland after leaving school and then in 2014 she toured NZ with her husband in search of finding the best place in the country to live and ended up in Ōhope.
The career journey to Safestaff started in Adventure Tourism, to Sport and Recreation, to Farming and Joinery until she mastered the skills and knowledge of workplace health and safety. Managing a Drug Testing Agency in Southland for a number of years led to pursuing a career in Health and Safety. She holds a Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety, A Diploma in Sport and Recreation and Qualifications in Joinery and Small Business Management.
 
Following demand from business owners needing support in H&S Management Isabelle founded Stafestaff and in 2018 she built the Safety Hub herself after identifying a need for simple supported online safety management systems.
 
Isabelle loves working with people and gets a buzz out of removing the negative stigma some people have about health and safety.
The future plans of Stafestaff are to grow through innovation, technology and by making a difference to the way health and safety is managed in small to medium enterprises. Helping businesses to be protected legally and making a positive difference to the way people work.
 
Isabelle believes that by listening to her clients and their teams, she can improve the systems that help people do things better and smarter and creating safe and healthy workplaces.
 
“Hear something and you will forget, see something and you might remember but it’s not until you do something that you will understand…”

Shawn Pery – IT Expert

Shawn does the technical work on our super complex safety forms (for when Isabelle admits defeat) the rest of the hub was built by Isabelle.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Shawn has always had a thirst for knowledge and adventure. After graduating from UC San Diego with a major in Economics and a minor in Business, he embarked on an expansive career journey.

Shawn spent his early 20s at ICM Partners, Live Nation and ADP learning and experiencing the finance world. Hungry for more, Shawn decided to leave his 9 to 5 and work on his true passion, web design and app development. 2020 was a year of immense growth personally and professionally, Shawn taught himself to code, he built multiple websites and dove deeper into the realm of web development.

Whether in Los Angeles or his new home in Fort Collins, Colorado, Shawn is always on the move while solving problems and developing processes to help those in need of web support. When he is not nerding out on the latest update or React vernacular, Shawn is hiking the Rockies, biking the Front Range or road tripping with his girlfriend Alex and pup Ziggy

"Our Construction company has been using SafeStaff as our Health and Safety provider for some years now. We have used other providers in the past, with mixed results. We have found the systems and support that SafeStaff have given us over the years to be more useful, and extremely helpful. It’s always great to hear a friendly voice over the phone!"
