In early September a brave team representing Safety First showed up to the challenging charity event Rescue Run! The team were proud to do their part in raising funds for Emergency Services.
As part of our commitment to work with our clients to transform the safety culture of New Zealand, we are collaborating with SafetyCulture to bring our clients a series of free digital health and safety ergonomics templates through their Safer World Programme.
Safety First created the health and safety plans for ORO17 Music Festival and provided H&S advice and support to the organisers, including the creation of large signs for safety notices. The ORO festival was a huge success with a full moon, and thousands of happy revellers enjoying a safe, well-organised event.
On 4 April, the ‘new’ Health and Safety at Work Act will have been in effect for a year. So, what has changed - and where are we at? We see hundreds of cases in the courts every year, and some of them are… interesting to say the least! However, we still have a long road ahead of us before we see the positive effects of the changes in ultimately creating a safer society with a strong safety culture.
Directors, Board Members, CEOs, Building Owners and Property Managers must ensure that health and safety responsibilities are met under the HSWA.
New Zealand is aiming to decrease Health & Safety incidents by 25% in 4 years. Find out why the changes to our OH&S laws create business opportunities.
