Keeping Safe at Work
Tuesday August 1, 2023
We urge anyone deeply concerned about Health and Safety in New Zealand to read the first article shared in this month’s newsletter. NZ businesses, including Boards and Senior Management, hold a major responsibility to prioritise worker safety and take necessary actions for their well-being. If an accident occurs, the involved business must accept the consequences, tell the truth, and implement measures to prevent any such incidents from recurring. There will be consequences if you don’t.
