Revised Health and Safety Reform Bill

30 July 2015

Update for July 2015 on the Revised Health and Safety Reform Bill

The Select Committee considering the Health and Safety Reform Bill has made improvements to the Bill so coverage of volunteers and volunteering organisations will remain as it is under the current law.

The changes recognise that volunteers contribute greatly to New Zealand communities and aim to ensure the new law doesn’t negatively affect volunteering.

What happens next?

The Bill will go through its remaining parliamentary debates before passing into law. The new law (the Health and Safety at Work Act) and supporting regulations will come into force several months after it is passed to give people time to prepare.
