BCITO has developed two information resources relating to the Health and Safety at Work Act that are suitable for employers engaged in training and apprentices:

  1. The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 - A tradie's guide to the legislation
  2. Out with the old and in with the new - the similarities and differences between New Zealand's old and new heath and safety legislation

These publications are designed to help you get your head around what’s new, what’s changed and what’s already familiar but is now expressed in a different way.

You can read both publications online now:
