Health and Safety Toolbox

H & S crop


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.

Workshop details:
Community Waikato is hosting a brand new series of free H&S workshops throughout the Waikato region. Spaces are limited. As a community organisation or marae, you’re invited to come and find out about:
  • H&S responsibilities and how to manage the risks and harm you're facing
  • The practical steps, training and instruction needed
  • The impact of key changes resulting from the new 2015 Act
  • How to create a comprehensive Health & Safety Plan with H&S policies & procedures tailored and appropriate to your specific needs

Also, you’ll receive a copy of the new booklet “Health & Safety Toolbox for Community Organisations and Marae”.

Workshop Cost: Free
