Health & Safety
In April 2016, new health and safety legislation came into force in New Zealand. If your Association is a PCBU (Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking), the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) will apply to how you manage health and safety risks.
The below guides and tools are designed to help you understand HSWA – both its purpose and intent – and help you achieve positive health and safety outcomes at your Association or Club.
