Health and Safety at Work Act 2015

The new Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 comes into force on 4 April 2016.

In between all the good information and misinformation about the changes we need to remember why the law is changing. Overall New Zealand does not have a good health and safety record.

Worksafe’s Our Performance Story 2015 will help remind you why changes are necessary (see pages 5-8).

Many organisations and many people make health and safety a normal part of their everyday business and it becomes part of what they do. There is always room for improvement and every business needs to “do” health and safety everyday regardless of size.
