The latest – quick tips from our expert Health and Safety panel

At the second Health and Safety seminar in July, our panel summarised “key advice” for businesses. In short:

  • Linda Wilson, Worksafe NZ: “Monitor and manage your risks so you can prevent harm
  • Peter Kiely, Kiely Thompson Caisley: “It’s not business as usual. It’s time to do things differently.”
  • Sarah Neville, Ellis Gould: “It’s about continuous improvement. Make sure to monitor and review your practices.”
