New legislation - The Bill provides that an insurance policy that indemnifies a person against a fine or infringement fee under the Act will be of no effect. This means you cannot get insurance to cover you if you are prosecuted/fined under the new legislation.

Are you insured against fire? Most probably! – What is more likely to occur, your business burns down or an employee breeches the Health and Safety Act?

Each year on average across New Zealand 75 people die on the job, 1 in 10 is harmed, 600-900 die from work-related diseases - all coming at a cost of $3.5 billion per annum.

The Fire Safety and Evacuation of Buildings Regulations 1992 require that buildings have a procedure for the safe, expeditious and efficient evacuation of the occupants. The role of Fire Warden is a key element to this procedure.

There is a benefit to everyone when good health and safety practices are observed. Every workplace has an obligation to ensure the Health and Safety of its staff, customers and visitors. Ensure your staff know their obligations by training them now so you are well prepared for the impending new legislation.
