Our Health and Safety at Work Strategy outcomes dashboard, Briefing to the Incoming Minister, and the report from the Targeted Independent Review of WorkSafe undertaken by Doug Martin.
New Zealand Health and Safety at Work Strategy Outcomes dashboard
A new dashboard (December 2019 snapshot) has been created to monitor New Zealand’s progress towards achieving the outcomes in the Health and Safety at Work Strategy. It brings together readily available data on the priority areas of the Strategy and will be improved as new data becomes available. The dashboard shows the key areas we all need to focus on in order to drive progress, at every level and in every sector (including the health and safety professions). The dashboard is made available so that we can all understand the bigger picture and take action towards better health and safety at work.
Briefing to the Incoming Minister
Targeted independent review of WorkSafe New Zealand
In late 2015, Doug Martin was commissioned to undertake a targeted independent review of WorkSafe New Zealand which focussed on its engagement, assessing the quality of its interactions with stakeholders given WorkSafe’s education, engagement and enforcement roles.
