Health & Safety

The regime for health and safety in New Zealand creates challenges for all organisations. Our team of health and safety lawyers work with clients to satisfy their obligations and ensure their workplaces are free from harm. 

We work with organisations in many sectors, including high-risk areas such as construction, infrastructure and manufacturing.  Our clients include many of New Zealand's most significant private and public sector organisations.

How we help clients

We help clients develop and implement effective health and safety strategies. Our services include:

  • providing boards and leadership teams with strategic advice and guidance (including independent reviews)
  • developing and implementing health and safety programmes including governance, reporting and audit processes
  • developing and implementing health and safety management systems
  • providing leadership development, training and mentoring, including strategies for driving employee engagement in health and safety
  • reviewing operational processes
  • drafting commercial contracts that address health and safety in a pragmatic, comprehensive manner.

Our experts are also highly experienced in assisting employers and others in the handling of Worksafe NZ investigations, right from the time a workplace incident occurs. We can be on the ground promptly, to ensure there are people on site who can provide specialist assistance in dealing with the regulators, and often the police, from the beginning of the process and during the investigation and interview phase.

If an investigation does result in a prosecution, we have significant experience managing and defending prosecutions in the District Court and High Court.
