Wellington Health & Safety at Work: NZ Guide for Recruiters
Following the release of the NZ Work Health and Safety guide, the aim of this session is to promote and encourage best practice health and safety across all stakeholders within the on-hire worker services industry; to assist all parties involved to understand their legal responsibilities; and to work together to maximise the health and safety of the person performing the work.
The guide contains a plain language explanation of the legal responsibilities of:
- The Agency
- The Client and the person controlling the workplace
- The Worker (the Agency's employee)
It also provides information and guidance for on-hire Agencies and their Clients, to assist them to fulfil their work health and safety responsibilities, including references to sources of further information in support of this guide.
The aim of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) is to ensure work activities are safe and risks are identified and mitigated. It seeks to achieve this by:
- assigning responsibilities/duties to all people connected with the work activity, including, the Agency, the Client and the Worker;
- requiring a systematic approach to making the work situation safe and without risk to health; and
- defining the standard of performance required of the people connected with the work activity.
Purpose & Learning Outcomes:
- To ensure the Worker is assigned to a safe working environment and can return safely home each day
- To provide clarification on legislative requirements and how the Agency can effectively implement a safe system of work in partnership with the Client.
- To provide consistent interpretation of legislative requirements and guidance on fulfilling these.
