Workplace health and safety reform

7 August 2013

The Government has announced the most significant reform of New Zealand’s workplace health and safety system in 20 years.

‘Working Safer: a blueprint for health and safety at work’ is the Government’s response to the recommendations of the Independent Taskforce on Workplace Health and Safety set up in April 2012, partially in response to the Pike River Coal Mine disaster.
