Our areas of expertise

Proactive, rather than reactive, steps are essential to managing health and safety in the workplace. A constructive employment relationship is fundamental to achieving this and also to creating a culture in the workplace regarding health and safety as part of everyday work practice.

Employers have strict obligations to minimise the risk of harm to employees and others associated with the workplace. When an accident does occur, it is essential that the response is managed and coordinated well to ensure minimal disruption and cost.

We can assist employers and employees by:

  • Advising on and drafting health and safety terms and conditions in employment agreements
  • Drafting health and safety and related policies and strategies, for example, in relation to bullying and harassment, fatigue, and drugs and alcohol
  • Managing and advising on employer or employee obligations and any related claims
  • Advising on legislative and regulatory compliance
  • Managing communications with Worksafe New Zealand, for example, in relation to improvement and prohibition notices
