Work-Rite is a new company which provides professional training packages and consultancy services. Within the initial setup months this will occur through a two-pronged approach.
Loss Prevention – Training and consultancy service to prevent the incidents and effects of retail crime on businesses
Alcohol – Consultation and training in specific requirements of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 for businesses and organisations that require compliance to operate.
Work-Rite was founded by Eden Sewell (Dip.Pol) who started the company after a lengthy career with the New Zealand Police spanning almost 17 years.
During time with Police he became a Police trainer in public order, baton instruction and a qualified Alcohol Harm Reduction Officer.
He was promoted to Sergeant after 6 years and spent the next 10 leading a front- line section. Experience in CIB and the Armed Offenders Squad coupled with planning and deploying to significant operations like Rugby World Cup and Rugby 7’s tournaments provided unique experience in large event planning and management.
Time spent as the Liquor Licencing Sergeant for Hawkes Bay also groomed a strong knowledge of the sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012.
This platform provided extensive experience in prosecuting through the Licensing Authority for breaches of Liquor Licenses.
To round off an exciting career he also gained experience in district court as the Police Prosecutor.
Each day the growing trend of retail crime and alcohol fuelled offences could be seen consistently rising in frequency and the resources to deal with the issues not effectively in place.

“Mitre10 MEGA Hastings & Napier chose the Safety & Engagement in Loss Prevention course for our Security teams, to give them a better understanding of how to keep themselves and our teams safe, whilst minimising loss and deterring threats. Andrew & Eden have the background and experience to equip theteam with the confidence and knowledge to both prevent theft and also how to diffuse situations before they escalate. We have team members with retail security experience ranging from 6 months to 12 years and everyone learnt something. We have no problem recommending Work-Rite to prospective clients looking to reduce loss and risk by up-skilling their team.”
