The Independent Taskforce on Workplace Health and Safety has found that New Zealand’s current health and safety system is not fit for purpose.

After 10 months of consultation, analysis and research, the Taskforce delivered its report to the Minister of Labour, Hon Simon Bridges on 30 April 2013.

The Taskforce believes that there is no single critical factor behind New Zealand’s poor health and safety record. Rather, New Zealand’s workplace health and safety system has a number of significant weaknesses that need to be addressed if New Zealand is to achieve a major step-change in workplace health and safety performance.

The Taskforce was established in June 2012 to evaluate whether the workplace and safety system in New Zealand was fit for purpose, and to recommend practical strategies for reducing the high rate of workplace fatalities and serious injuries by 2020.
