Abstract:

With the Pike River tragedy having focused national attention on workplace health and safety culture and also having driven legislative reform, it has become crucial to not only understand health and safety, but also to know the law. Written for everyone working in this country, Health and Safety at Work in New Zealand: Know the Law is a comprehensive guide to the new Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. The only resource to collate relevant case law, legislative, policy and international discussion in one practical book, Health and Safety at Work in New Zealand: Know the Law is an essential guide for anyone wanting to understand how the new law applies to New Zealand workplaces. This 11 chapter book covers all the essential elements of the new Act, the legal framework and policy background, while also discussing relevant cases from New Zealand and Australia. It includes chapters on key terms, offences, enforcement, sentencing, regulations and codes of practice. The book also includes diagrams to help explain key concepts. In addition a chapter is included with guidance on specific topics that many readers will find useful including asbestos, earthquake issues, oil and gas, farming, adventure tourism and construction. A particularly handy reference tool for legal practitioners, advisors, managers, directors, health and safety professionals and students, Health and Safety at Work in New Zealand: Know the Law addresses everything from the history of health and safety law in New Zealand to the investigation and prosecution powers of the regulator.
