The Health and Safety at Work Act became 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 John O’Rourke, Health & Safety Consultant for Minter Ellison Rudd Watts.
