Occupational Health, Safety and HSNO Tools

This guide outlines the scope of a number of WorkSafe publications, providing basic information to help inform decisions about further actions that may be required in a workplace for health and safety.

This booklet:

  • summarises the HSE Act
  • outlines the scope of a number of Worksafe NZ publications
  • provides basic information about the topics
  • helps to inform decisions about further actions that may be required in a workplace for health and safety and
  • refers readers to the original source of the information.

Most of the entries are aides-memoir for a specific Worksafe NZ publication.

A few entries cover material that is not referenced to a Worksafe NZ publication. These are included because they address long standing important gaps (eg human error, silos, radiation) or because new responsibilities have been assigned to Worksafe (gas safety, electrical safety).

Many of Worksafe NZ’s guidelines and Codes of Practice are highly detailed and technical. You may need to a specialist to help understand and apply these details.

The booklet does not cover Worksafe NZ’s publications about Forestry, Agriculture or Construction.

This guide applies to the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 and the HSNO Act, 1996. It does not cover the new workplace health and safety act. It will be amended to reflect it in due course.
