New Zealand Guide to Workplace Health and Safety
The new Health and Safety at Work Act, which came into effect on 4 April 2016, reformed New Zealand’s workplace health and safety system, following the work of the Independent Taskforce on Workplace Health and Safety and the Royal Commission on the Pike River Coal Mine Tragedy.
Aimed at health and safety managers, HR managers, general managers and business owners, the New Zealand Guide to Workplace Health and Safety is a comprehensive guide to this new health and safety regime, ensuring that PCBUs (Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking) and their Officers know how to operate in compliance with the new law. The Guide has been written by health and safety consultant Terry Coyle and consulting editors Greg Cain and Grant Nicholson from leading law firm Kensington Swan.
Subscribers to this online service receive access to all the relevant legislation, including the new regulations, the Approved Codes of Practice and the commentary listed below. They also receive the New Zealand Workplace Health and Safety Bulletin, published biannually, which includes an informative article on a topical issue, developments in legislation and government initiatives, and a round-up of overseas health and safety news.
