The Health and Safety at Work Strategy was launched last week, setting out the Government's vision for improving workplace health and safety across New Zealand over the next ten years.
- Sets a clear direction for New Zealand, providing a shared vision for where we want to get to, and what we need to do to get there.
- Identifies the common capability gaps and opportunities, through a set of goals and priorities that help us focus our efforts.
- Supports better coordination, by providing visibility of the different roles we have and a framework to talk to each other about how we're working towards better health and safety.
- Improves measurement, through the work to build a better picture of New Zealand's overall health and safety.
The Strategy was developed with a range of stakeholders, informed by research and public consultation on the draft Strategy. We thank you if you've made a submission or attended a workshop.
The next step will be to turn the Strategy's vision into action.
