Phil presented to 150 people from the Inter Church Bureau in Hamilton last week, followed by sessions in Tauranga and Rotorua. They’ve been in Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin this week and are moving on to Nelson next.
During 2015 a group of our Associates (Fiona, Phil, Leah and Robyn) undertook a massive project to custom-design a Health and Safety seminar, workbook and resources toolkit for the Inter Church Bureau, to provide vital information of the changes resulting from the new Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. Late last year the team presented a pilot seminar which was very well received, and they got the go ahead to take the workshop nationwide.
They are now mid-way through the roll out and are touring around the country facilitating numerous training sessions from Whangarei to Invercargill. The seminars will focus on critical points for health and safety around the church and the different options they provide for their communities. The seminars are due to be completed by the end of April, after which all participants will receive their workbooks and toolkits.
With the new Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 just coming into force (4 April 2016), it’s the perfect time to take a good, hard look at health and safety in your organisation. Don’t forget to contact us if you need assistance getting your health and safety up to scratch!
