WorkSafe New Zealand Visit Support
WorkSafe New Zealand
WorkSafe is the New Zealand Government organisation which administers and enforces the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. There is a nationwide team of WorkSafe Inspectors who are actively engaged in workplace safety assessments, inspections and accident investigations.
Often WorkSafe will call the management of a business in advance to arrange an inspection of its premises. Any workplace assessment or inspection conducted by WorkSafe may result in—verbal direction, a compliance letter, an improvement notice or a prohibition notice being issued to the business owner or individuals.
These types of notices are issued by an inspector when existing matters of non compliance are observed or a business is perceived to be in breach. This may include any breach when a business fails to meet industry standards such as Codes of Practice or Good Practice Guidelines. These notices can also be issued when there is an obvious failing by a company to comply with the regulations and Act.
Health and Safety Systems can assist with:
Previsit assessment to gauge your workplace compliance prior to a visit by WorkSafe
Provide on site expertise and support during WorkSafe visits
