Workplace Health & Safety Systems

Rangiriri Consultants specialises in working with each workplace to produce a unique, relevant and appropriate health and safety management system.

Since the enactment of the Health and Safety in Employment Act in 1992, workplace safety has been driven to significant reforms. Recent highly publicised accidents and a persistently high number of workplace injuries necessitated further changes.

In December 2013, WorkSafe NZ, a dedicated agency, was established to oversee health and safety. It serves as the enforcement authority and handles HSNO and ACC compliance.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 became law in August 2015, aligning New Zealand's legislation with international standards. This legislation emphasises a risk management approach and places greater responsibility on businesses for the safety of their workers and visitors.

Standards NZ recently adopted ISO 45001:2018 as the preferred standard for Health and Safety Management Systems. This global standard offers guidance for building top-notch safety management systems. Rangiriri Consultants specialise in creating tailored systems based on ISO 45001:2018, ensuring international recognition and certification.

Importance of a robust system

There is an old saying "if it is not written down it didn't happen". A robust health and safety management system is like a good insurance policy in that it provides a level of protection when required.

More importantly, a good health and safety management system provides a clear road map for ensuring the following bases are covered:

  • Visitor and Contractor Management

  • Hazard ID, risk assessment and mitigation

  • Training and competency

  • Plant and Machinery Management

  • Accident / Incident Management

  • Emergency preparedness

Rangiriri Consultants specialises in working with each workplace to produce a unique, relevant and appropriate health and safety management system.

Each workplace is unique and needs to have a health and safety management system that reflects that uniqueness.

Due Diligence

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 Officers (those with directional control of a company e.g. owners, board members, CEO's etc.) have a requirement to undertake due diligence to ensure the PCBU (company) is discharging it's duties under the act.
