The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 comes into force in April 2016. Generally if Church groups are complying with the current law they will not have to make significant changes to their practices.
To help Church groups and organisations understand the new law and their responsibilities under this new legislation, the InterChurch Bureau is arranging a series of interdenominational workshops throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand, starting in Auckland during the week from 22 February 2016 and then throughout New Zealand.
Two members from each parish, trust or congregation are invited to attend.
Details of dates and regional locations will be available shortly.
More information will follow.
