The Health and Safety at Work Act and Your Workplace

Health and Safety Law - what you need to knowIntroduction 

The Health and Safety Reform Bill is about to enter the Parliamentary select committee process. In a little over a years time the Health and Safety at Work Act will become law. It will bring considerable change to the workplace health and safety landscape in New Zealand. How ready is your organisation? What needs to be changed?

HR Development and Training Ltd are committed to providing organisations with a deeper understanding of what the new legislation will mean for management and staff. We are experienced in delivering health and safety solutions to private businesses, central/local government and NGO’s.

There has already been a lot of publicity around the new legislation. It is important to plan now for what needs to be changed in your organisation and ensure that valuable resources are directed to the right areas.

The course is suitable for management and supervisory staff at all levels.


Course participants will learn about the history of health and safety law in New Zealand and how the latest changes will alter the way we manage health and safety at all levels. The course will be tailored to your organisation and the environment it operates in. We will ensure you are well briefed on the key issues of:

  • Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU) – what this means for governance and management at all levels.
  • The meaning of ‘Reasonably Practicable’ – why it demands more from us that ‘All Practicable Steps’ does.
  • Notifiable Incidents – a broader range of reporting requirements to Worksafe NZ means our incident investigation  frameworks will need to cover a wider scope of incidents.
  • Duty Holders Review – what this requires from our internal health and safety resources.
