UPDATE FROM THE NZISM PRESIDENT

If we as an industry are to contribute to addressing the capability and capacity issues that exist in the industry we need to be leading the charge in professionalism and the way we behave when operating in the health and safety system, including when working with those who call on us to assist in developing health and safety within their business or when engaging with other colleagues within the industry. This obviously applies no matter what your employment status, be it consultant, contractor or employee.Finally, I am looking forward to supporting three branches in the coming month at their various CPD days with Tauranga, Rotorua and Invercargill all running events in the next few weeks. I encourage members in those regions to support their local branch activity; it’s a great way to recognise your colleagues on local committees and the hard work they put in to organise events for your benefit.Ngā mihi mahanaGreg DearslyPresidentIf you wish to contact me, please email me at president@nzism.org ...

NZISM in the media: 10 year work safety strategy

The timing (just before Christmas) meant that Workplace Relations and Safety Minister Iain Lees-Galloway's announcement of a new health and safety strategy garnered little attention. The strategy sets out a direction for New Zealand's workplace health and safety over the next 10 years — developed by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, WorkSafe New Zealand and a range of stakeholders. The next step will be to turn the strategy's vision into action, with the minister anticipating that government agencies will align their health and safety-related work with the strategy. "I also encourage sectors, businesses and communities to do the same," he said. ...
