The attached Worksafe New Zealand Update explains some of the key concepts in the proposed Health and Safety Reform Bill, which is due to be passed in April 2015. All businesses, schools, farmers, voluntary organisations etc.should begin to consider how this will effect their business; and whether their current health and safety systems are up-to scratch. The reforms will put in place higher levels of accountability and liability for businesses. If a businesses current health and safety system isn't meeting the requirements under the current Act, it will definately not meet what is required under the Health and Safety Reform Bill.
