Product description

All businesses and organisations that have premises and facilities need to be aware of the laws that apply to them. It is important that employees with responsibility for premises and facilities are aware of, and understand, not only the policies of their employer, but also the basics of premises and facilities law.

Premises and Facilities Law Made Easy sets out the practical essentials that are relevant to the daily operations of businesses in New Zealand. It is a practical guide in plain English that covers everything from building compliance schedules to transport services licensing. Whether it is the law relating to building warrants of fitness, fire evacuation schemes or passenger service vehicles, this book covers it all. And much more. It also covers what can happen if you get it wrong.

By raising awareness, Premises and Facilities Law Made Easy assists businesses to comply with their legal obligations.
