The Government is to establish a new, stand-alone workplace health and safety agency to significantly improve New Zealand’s workplace health and safety record.

The new agency will be committed to ensuring people are well protected from injury and death at work. 

The Crown agent will enforce workplace health and safety regulations, and work collaboratively with employers and employees to embed and promote good workplace health and safety practices.
