Training Courses NZ: Preparing for Harmonisation

New Zealand Harmonisation and reforms in Health and Safety includes plans to replace NZ’s current Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 (NZ) with a new Health and Safety at Work Act (NZ), based on Australia’s Model Work Health  and Safety (WHS)  Act .

What are the major changes to the New Zealand WHS system that our Training Courses NZ program addresses?

  • The establishment of an Independent Taskforce on WHS.
  • The development of a reform package.
  • The introduction of new health and safety legislation in the form of the Health and Safety (Pike River Implementation) Bill based on Australian Model H&S legislation.
  • A new stand-alone regulator, WorkSafe New Zealand, is to be established.
  • Transitional arrangements are to be put in place, and
  • Further initiatives aimed at improving performance.

USSA Training Courses NZ is positioned to deliver targeted training which addresses these reforms and based on guidance from the Australian /New Zealand Standards for Risk Management and Quality Management Systems.

With considerable experience in the mining, manufacturing, forestry, agriculture and construction industry in NZ, USSA Training Courses NZ and training consultants are well placed to offer their expertise in relation to these reforms and how they will impact on Work Health and Safety across New Zealand.

Further information regarding these new workplace health and safety reforms can be found in USSA’s New Zealand’s Special newsletter
