Health and Safety law is not just about defending or bringing a prosecution after an accident has already happened. The firm’s specialty is around the development of workplace systems designed to prevent harm. Using the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and it’s regulations as a starting point, Hazel is able to work with workers and PCBU’s to develop practical solutions. Hazel has worked with the Workers Education Trust making the risk assessment and the worker participation, engagement and representation systems effective.
Risk assessment is at the heart of the new law, and it requires competency on the part of all involved to achieve a safe workplace. Off the shelf products cannot replace an analysis of the unique needs and risks within an organisation.
Hazel has worked with the Workers’ Education Trust to develop the stages 1, 2 and 3 course materials for the Worksafe for Health and Safety Representative Training Course Workbook.
