Community Waikato and Altus NZ Ltd have partnered to produce a Health & Safety Toolbox for community organisations and marae. This resource is designed to guide the thinking of small to medium sized groups addressing a broad range of health and safety circumstances.
The Community Waikato approach to health and safety is to encourage organisations and marae to consider the health and wellbeing of everyone involved with activities at their ‘workplace’ or marae, regardless of their legal obligations. Why? Because at the end of every day we all want everyone to return home healthy and safe.
Also, you’ll receive a copy of the new booklet “Health & Safety Toolbox for Community Organisations and Marae”.

The Altus leadership team lead by managing director, Ron Holden, is passionate about not just giving back to the community but also sharing their knowledge, experiences and success.

Altus is excited and proud to be working with Community Waikato to contribute toward educating the community in the importance of Health and Safety by delivering training and sharing in their experiences with health and safety and how they have learnt and grown from them.
