A comprehensive guide to NZ’s health and safety scheme in an accessible format, enabling businesses to understand their rights and obligations and manage their legal risk.


Format: ePub


Health and safety is now the responsibility of everyone at the workplace under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. The personal and financial consequences of getting it wrong are severe. Ignorance of the law is no excuse and businesses must inform themselves. There is no room for a casual approach to health and safety – the stakes are too high.

Adjusting to the changes in health and safety law is a challenge. Health and Safety Law Made Easy keeps it simple for you. It provides a practical guide to New Zealand’s health and safety scheme in an accessible format, enabling you to understand your rights and duties and manage your legal risks. Included are examples, practical checklists and insightful tips to ensure you’re making the best decisions. Most of the health and safety concerns you have thought of are covered, as well as the ones you haven’t, including the classes of duty-holders, their associated duties, worker engagement, misleading conduct and much more.

Health and Safety Law Made Easy provides the practical essentials of the law so that you’ll have more time to focus on the important part – implementing a strong health and safety culture at your workplace.
