New health and safety law from April
By now you probably know that the new Health and Safety at Work Act comes into force on April 4 2016. But what does that mean for you and your business?
The first thing to understand is that the basics of good health and safety aren’t changing. If your business has good systems in place and follows through with good practice day-in, day-out then nothing much will need to change.
WorkSafe New Zealand will be producing a range of information and guidance material to help businesses and workers come to grips with the new law and regulations. Already there is plenty of information about the general provisions of new Act on the WorkSafe website to help you get ready.
