On 4 April 2016, the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) came into force bringing new responsibilities for everyone in the workplace. The new law is part of a reform package aimed at reducing the number of serious work-related injuries and deaths in New Zealand by at least 25 percent by 2020.
Everyone who goes to work deserves to come home healthy and safe. We encourage all our members to keep safe at work. Please make sure you are aware of your obligations under the new Act and Regulations.
