Health & Safety Committees

In collaboration with MBIE, PSA, NZISM and WorkSafe, we have developed a resource outlining the key principles for enabling effective Health and Safety Committees.

Health and Safety Committees (H&S Committees) serve as mechanisms for understanding how work is performed and for workers to offer insights, comments and advice on health and safety systems. They are not decision-making bodies.

The operation of H&S Committees aligns with the objectives of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. Furthermore, they help fulfil the requirements outlined in Section 61 of the Act by providing a reasonable opportunity for workers to engage with health and safety and to participate in the development of health and safety systems.
