About us

We help businesses create lasting improvements to their Health & Safety, so that they pay consistently less ACC premiums & have fewer incidents.

All with the minimum impact on your current workload.

Dr Paul Reyneke – Managing Director

Paul came to New Zealand from South Africa in the late 1990’s where he held senior human resource positions, specialising in organisational behaviour change. His work included implementing a quality improvement programme in a very large petro-chemical company and introducing a conflict resolution process in several deep mining companies in the aftermath of the divisive Apartheid era. His New Zealand employers include Southern Cross Healthcare (including Fusion during the privatised workplace insurance days), ACC and Foodstuffs Auckland’s Group Health and Safety Manager.

He holds a Doctor of Professional Studies from CQUniversity, Sydney and a Master of Management from University of Auckland. The topic of his doctoral research was “A Complex Adaptive Systems Approach to Reducing Work Related Injuries in New Zealand Supermarkets”.

He was the 2009 recipient of the New Zealand Health and Safety Practitioner of the Year award.

Maureen Irwin – Executive Director

Maureen has a background in insurance and worked for Southern Cross Health Society for 10 years where she was instrumental in leading the change to a values-based organisation. Her experience within the organisation also focused heavily on structuring strategic programmes to deliver meaningful solutions to corporate companies.

She has worked in a wide range of organisations, including landscaping, the timber industry and land transport and she holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Business (PGDipBus) from the University of Auckland.

Maureen joined Paul in establishing Adapto Ltd early in 2011.

  • “Adapto provided us with the know-how and support at all levels to help us achieve better safety behaviours and practices. Adapto's systematic practical approach has normalised safety and resulted in massive immediate savings with our ACC levies.”
