Club Resources Templates and Supporting Documents

The Health and Safety at Work Act came into force on April 4, 2016 with additional Health and Safety requirements, as the Government looks to substantially reduce New Zealand’s terrible work safety record.

It is important that Health and Safety is given a priority now and not delayed.

HRNZ have resources to assist Clubs as to where they can get assistance and guidance if required, plus your local WorkSafe representative will also be available to assist.
