Are you managing Health & Safety in the Workplace?
The focus of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 is on encouraging everyone to take responsibility for the things they can control to help reduce the risk of injury or illness.
Have you updated your health and safety management system since 2015?
Our Health & Safety in the Workplace brochure provides a checklist that you can use to check whether you have the systems in place to meet your obligations under the Act, including a five-step action plan to improve the way you manage Health & Safety.
We have policies and procedures which provides the Board and myself, as CEO, with confidence that we are on the right side of the ledger, and is a practical tool my staff can use. Salus will keep us up to date and I am confident in the fast moving business environment we operate in, our system will continue to improve.
As the ‘go-live’ date for the new health and safety legislation drew closer, Marina View’s principal Maurice Young knew the school needed to get things sorted.Through word of mouth, he’d heard that Salus was particularly user-friendly, and though the referee wasn’t from another school, their report was glowing enough for Maurice to make contact.

- Engagement is the Bridge between paper, software and people.
- Involving people and ensuring they are genuinely engaged in the process is critical for success. When people are personally involved they develop a sense of ownership, and this directly influences the final outcome with strong buy in, which means the changes arising are welcomed rather than resisted.
- Your business will change over time and your health and safety program needs may too. People will move in, and out and around your organisation so ongoing training is essential. Consider how new people are inducted into the system. What supplementary training and support do they need as it is important to provide the same levels to achieve the same results with new employees.
- The final stage is supporting your people after implementation.

Without an external audit, it’s difficult to be certain you are sitting over and above simply compliant.
Sean’s visit was very thorough. He spent time reviewing both strengths and weaknesses and provided positive feedback that our efforts were paying off.
“As a multi-national we are conscious of meeting its legal and social responsibilities. The new health and safety legislation signalled significant change in New Zealand and as a matter of course we used Salus to review our existing health and safety policy and procedures and ensure the business was meeting the new legal requirements. I was mindful that as officers, the directors I am part of, could now be held personally liable.
