WorkSafe NZ 10-year strategic plan

06 Dec 2016, Posted by Professor Niki Ellis in WHS

WorkSafe NZ have issue a 10-year strategic plan for work-related health. Safeguard, a WHS safety magazine, asked me, along with others to comment.  I thought the plan reflected the rather reluctant transition WHS is currently experiencing as it broadens from a health protection model: mandated approach, employer responsibility to create a healthy and safe environment; to one that also includes a voluntary component with a shared responsibility for worker health promotion.  You can read my response in the November/December issue of Safeguard magazine here.
