The Government has released its draft Health and Safety at Work Strategy 2018-2028 for public consultation.

Developed by MBIE and WorkSafe NZ, the strategy is designed to:

  • Provide vision and direction for the overall improvement of health and safety at work in New Zealand.
  • Align direction across the health and safety system.
  • Enable coordination between people in the system and ensure there is clear accountability.
  • Identify capability gaps and opportunities.
  • Improve system measurement.

Radio NZ reports that, in introducing the strategy, Workplace Relations and Safety Minister Iain Lees-Galloway gave notice that the so-called worm farms exemption is unlikely to survive much longer.
