It’s Not Just About Leadership, It’s About Safety

Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16 – Released

NMN5-5-Chart-Image-72dpiCalling all leaders and directors, health and safety is essential for success. Those who do not place health and safety as a priority in their leadership duties run the risk of failing their obligations and duties as a leader as well as failing the organisation and their employees.

Pro-Visual Publishing, in collaboration with the New Zealand Institute of Safety Management, are delighted to announce the release of their latest edition of the Mining and Quarry Industry Guide to Safety.

New Zealand’s Health and Safety in Employment Act (HSE Act) sees that those who are in control of organisations must ensure they take all practicable steps to manage and reduce health and safety risks.

A principle has a duty to their contractors and sub-contractors to ensure that these workers are not harmed whilst carrying out their work. Those who fail the necessary steps to fill their duties may face conviction.

It is also the duty of those in leadership roles to safeguard workers and others in the vicinity against the dangers of plant and equipment. It is their role to ensure that plant and equipment on site are manufactured, set-up and maintained as safely as practicable.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Mining & Quarry Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
