Did you know each year in New Zealand workplaces, 75 people die and a further 6000 suffer serious harm?
Workplaces that are healthy and safe are vital to achieving high quality work environments. Every person in your organisation needs to increase their understanding of, and commitment to, health and safety. The new Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 seeks to create change in organisation culture. It also increases Directors’ responsibilities. The financial implications of non-compliance could cripple a business. Make sure your organisation is not one of them.
Everyone has an obligation to keep fellow employees, customers, suppliers and contractors safe and healthy. Improving the health and safety within your business will lead to higher productivity and efficiency. Increasing your organisation’s reputation as a safe and ethical workplace also attracts new clients and top employees who support those same values.
The Government entity WorkSafe NZ has set a target of reducing workplace deaths and serious injury rates by 10% by 2016 and then 25% by 2020, so we must all improve our awareness by working together towards this goal. What’s your organisation’s plan to reduce incidents and serious harm injuries?
“At Paul Diver Associates, we understand the importance of Health and Safety at your workplace. We facilitate on-site consultation by providing audits of your processes, and to educate your Managers through on-site presentations. By working together we will keep you up to date with the legislative changes as they unfold. We are passionate about assisting you to shape your business and work environment to be a safer, more productive workplace moving forward.“
