      Health and Safety Governance Training opportunity

      NZDSN secured a contract to provide free health and safety training for a limited number of disability support service providers.

      Why Health and Safety? 

      There are obligations on Board members and CEOs under the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSAW Act).  These obligations sit on top of the obligations to provide a quality support service under contract and meeting legislative and Enabling Good Lives requirements.

      Following a number of recent prosecutions in the disability support service sector, the risks to provider organisations cannot be overlooked.

      What the programme will offer you

      • A brief history of health and safety in NZ from Pike River to Whakaari and beyond
      • The scale of the health and safety issues we face and the burden of harm
      • The specific issues and challenges in our sector
      • Overview of the legislative landscape and key concepts of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015
      • The foundations of good governance practice and how this aligns with health and safety governance
      • What does health and safety due diligence require?
      • How to use risk management as an enabler to better organisational performance
      • The scope of our influence and control and that of others in the sector’s eco-system, including what this means from a health and safety perspective in understanding and managing overlapping duties and defining the responsibilities of funders
      • Monitoring what matters
      • The challenges and inconsistencies across legal frameworks - human rights, privacy, health and safety, Health Quality and Safety Commission, disability strategy, enabling good lives, etc., including how we can ensure consistent understanding of these by regulators

      Under the HSAW Act, Board members and CEOs have a duty to be aware of the requirements of the Act and how the health and safety systems work in their organisation.  This information briefing and following workshop will enable you to meet those requirements with confidence.

      Participation in the online information briefing and following workshop has been sponsored by Whaikaha, so is no cost to you.  But numbers registering for the workshops are limited to 30, on a first-in-first-served basis.
