WORKPLACE HEALTH & SAFETY

New Zealand has one of the most complex workplace relations systems in the world.  Knowing and understanding your obligations while maintaining compliance is incredibly challenging, but critical for the future success of your business.

Managing Health & Safety can be a daunting process; there’s so much to know, and it’s constantly changing. It can feel like the lines of red tape get deeper and you’re standing there… bewildered and frustrated. You need someone to cut through everything and give you what you need, quickly and with the least amount of effort. That’s where we can help.

Health & Safety has to be taken seriously. After all, you want to keep your staff safe and ensure you’re protected by meeting your legal obligations - but it’s not just about compliance, it’s about getting people home healthy and safe. Health & Safety isn’t just good for your business, it’s the right thing to do.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) provides a framework to secure the health and safety of workers and workplaces. A well functioning health and safety management system relies on participation, leadership and accountability.

Business owners or employers, as a "PCBU", must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers as a ‘primary duty of care’. Businesses must involve their workers in workplace health and safety matters by engaging with them about H&S matters that affect them, and by providing them with opportunities to participate in improving health and safety in the business.
