Red Cross New Zealand

First Aid Provider

Red Cross New Zealand and the NZ Sign & Display Association have come up with a plan to make your workplace and community a safer environment.  Together they have joined forces to strengthen the awareness of the importance of first aid.  The incentives and benefits that are now in place for our members will not only help them do business better, but will add value to their brand.

Red Cross New Zealand is the global leader in first aid training. They have provided first aid in New Zealand and throughout the world in teaching and disaster response capacities for over 100 years.  Their courses are based on world-class research and Red Cross’ on-going commitment to quality and excellence.

Red Cross can provide first aid training and courses by qualified instructors to over 70 locations nationwide all aligned with NZQA standards.  All courses are hands-on, where participants gain the practical skills, knowledge and confidence to perform first aid whenever and wherever they might need it.

As well as classroom learning, they also offer a flexible approach through blended learning options – a combination of digital and face-to-face options. Some courses can be partly self-taught through the Red Cross First Aid app or through an online learning platform.

First aid training is a cornerstone of New Zealand Red Cross’ mission to strengthen community and workplace resilience, so the more people who are first aid trained in your workplace, the better prepared everyone will be when it matters the most!

Debt Collection Services

ICMS is proudly a Kiwi owned and operated business that specialises in recovering debt effectively and efficiently for all its clients.

We understand that cash flow is the blood that keeps a business alive and we also understand how frustrating it can be when you aren’t paid for the goods or services you’ve provided. Trying to collect debt that has gone bad is not only stressful, it can end up costing you more and ultimately detracts from the reason you got into business in the first place.

It’s at this point, you need an established debt collector to manage the situation professionally and effectively to reach a resolution.

With over 25 years of experience in the field, we have a unique and proven effective approach to recovery. Instead of using tired and reactive methods, we aim to be smarter and more pro-active in the way outstanding debt is recovered. By using a different strategy, we have Account Managers who personally manage each debtor file which makes the process much more effective. We service businesses from closely held SME’s to large corporates such as trading banks, telcos and financiers.

We charge a commission for our service which is based on no ‘result, no commission’ and as long as your terms allow it with your client, we can add our costs on top of the original debt which we collect from the debtor. We are supported by modern IT systems and understand all applicable legislation that pertain to our industry so you can expect a professional service at all times.  ICMS offers our members a massive 20% savings on commission.

Signs and Displays are your business, recovering debt is ours. Don’t waste any more of your time doing what we should be. To find out more contact us today on 09 921 4600.


Health & Safety Consultant

For the last year and a half we have been working closely with a number of NZSDA members to put a simple but comprehensive H&S system in place for their business at an extremely competitive price. Most of the work is done for you when setting this up and when it’s finished you get:

  • A comprehensive 80+ page manual that is specific to your company (logos and names and roles are all in there)
  • A number of different tools that are specific to our industry and the work you are doing. For example – Induction forms, Checklists, Task/Risk Analysis, a comprehensive Risk Register related to your company, internal training sheets for your staff, hazard management tools, accident and incident investigation and reporting tools, the list goes on
  • Help getting this underway

Out in the market place a standard generic system is generally $1000+ but we have agreed a cost for our members of $525 +GST for a complete comprehensive system (slightly less if you have no employees). There may be on-going costs subject to help and support, however most of the NZSDA members that have purchased this system have got their heads around how to use it and only require a quick phone call to ensure peace of mind.

We also follow-up regularly to ensure that you are happy with the system, this mainly consists of a yearly reviews where we make minor tweaks to the manual, and help carry out a yearly review via the phone. We are receiving many phone calls from members asking for help with client Pre-qualification documents that can be a nightmare in some cases, however having this system in place and the chance to talk through the trickier questions makes the processes and procedures much easier to get through.

What is my next step? Get in touch with Lewis, he can discuss with you in more detail what you and your business requires.
