How the new Health and Safety Act 2015 will affect you

In partnership with the New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) and ACENZ, new guidance has been produced to help designers (including engineers and architects) understand their obligations under the new Health and Safety at Work Act, which came into force on 4 April 2016.

Our CPD course, Health and Safety at Work Act – An Update, also gives you more information on what the new Act means for you. 

We'll be withdrawing our Practice Note Safety and Engineers on 4 April. You’ll need to use this new guidance from then on. We’re also planning to update our Design for Safety in Buildings and Other Structures Practice Note to align with the new Act.
