The Health and Safety at Work Act becomes law on 4

April 2016. The Act is part of ‘Working Safer’, aimed at

reducing New Zealand’s workplace injury and death toll

by 25 per cent by 2020.

Whilst previous updates have made us aware of PCBUs

and increased penalties, the key is to understand how

our current health and safety plans need to change. We’ll

go through three stages of an event – planning/pack-in,

during an event, and pack out/closure and discuss:

  • your responsibilities for managing risk

  • when you need to consult with other PCBUs

(such as contractors)

  • how the Act applies to workers and volunteers

The seminar, including a Q&A section, is presented

by Rachel Pring, Senior Advisor from Worksafe New

Zealand. WorkSafe is the government health and safety

regulator responsible for the implementation and

enforcement of the Act.
