Published: 17 December 2018

The Government’s Health and Safety at Work Strategy 2018-28 was launched last week, setting out the Government’s vision for improving workplace health and safety across New Zealand over the next ten years.

The Strategy:

  • 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.
