In June 1972, in the UK, the Robens Committee reported on Safety and Health at Work. The report set the scene for the UK Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and from there the NZ Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. Chris will argue that we need to understand the origins of the UK Act if we are to understand two key concepts in our legislation – the duty of care and “reasonably practicable”.
