Members of our Duncan Cotterill Health and Safety team recently
attended the Business Leaders' Health and Safety Forum CEO
Summit. The Forum brings together a large group of New
Zealand's CEOs (whose organisations have committed to
maintaining zero harm workplaces) to focus on getting ready for the
new health and safety environment. It was evident that the business
leaders present are already prioritising health and safety in their
businesses, and personally committing to making this part of the
culture in their business.
Panel and group discussions highlighted that attendees were keen
to embrace the changes in health and safety and a number of
questions were raised about how such change could be achieved in
practice. It was particularly interesting hearing both Mike
Bennetts (CEO of Z Energy) and Mark Powell (CEO of the Warehouse
Group) speak about the changes they have each already made in their
respective organisations (in advance of the legislation coming into
effect) and the positive effect such changes have had. A major
challenge will be to bring smaller businesses and SMEs on board in
the drive to improve our workplace health and safety record.
We were also fortunate to hear from the newly appointed Minister
of Immigration, Police and Workplace Relations and Safety, Michael
Duncan Cotterill continues to be pro-active in health and safety
initiatives and encourages its clients to join this Forum, which
allows business leaders across all industries to share knowledge
about safety leadership (www.zeroharm.org.nz/contact).
