Online CPD Module

Presentation time: 90 minutes

Over a year on from the introduction of the Health and Safety at Work Act what conclusions can we draw? This module will provide perspectives from the regulator and the defence in this developing area.

The Act introduced fundamental changes to the law including duties being framed around a “person conducting a business or undertaking”, increased penalties and a tiered penalty regime, and the imposition of a positive duty of due diligence on directors and those in senior management.

The presenters will discuss where these changes are likely to be taking us and the practical implications for your clients stemming from these developments.

Topics covered will include:

  • Enforceable undertakings – what are your obligations
  • What approach is WorkSafe New Zealand taking
  • Review of recent decisions from Australia and the UK
  • Practical issues from the defence perspective.

Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.

Learning objectives

After completing this module you will:

  • Gain an understanding of WorkSafe’s enforcement approach and the circumstances in which enforceable undertakings are likely to be a realistic option.
  • Learn about emerging trends from Australia and the UK that are likely to be relevant in the NZ context.
  • Understand some practical issues arising in health and safety prosecutions.
