Health & Safety at Work Act

Health & Safety at Work Act
The new Health & Safety at Work Act was created to minimise the number of deaths and serious injuries that occur in workplaces in New Zealand.

The legislation now in force is stronger than it has ever been, with a requirement for everyone to be involved, and actively participating in Health & Safety at their workplace. While the news is highlighting the new responsibilities of Directors and Owners, everyone from the managers to staff also have responsibilities. The “She’ll be right” attitude is no longer acceptable. This talk goes through the requirements and responsibilities of everyone’s roles, so you know what is expected of everyone you work with, including yourself!
