Consultation open on Health and Safety at Work Strategy

8 May 2018

Worksafe NZ is consulting on their draft Health and Safety Strategy. See here for details.

Members are encouraged to participate in one of the regional briefings being undertaken by Worksafe, details of which can be found on the Worksafe website. Unless we receive a strong signal from members that we should be making a submission we will not be doing so to this document.

New Zealand has made progress in reducing injury and fatality rates, but our rates of harm are still too high.

Working with key stakeholders, the Government has developed a draft Health and Safety at Work Strategy, which sets out how to improve the health and safety of workers over the next 10 years.

Your input will help to make sure the Strategy is right, and that it’s meaningful for the people it needs to work for.

This is an important opportunity to contribute to building a system where all Kiwis are healthy and safe at work.

Consultation is open to everyone, and closes on Friday 8 June.

You might like to come along to one of the workshops this month, in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, Gisborne, Rotorua and Whangarei. You can register on the MBIE website.
