Housing New Zealand hosts quarterly health and safety forums for PBMC representatives and Health and Safety Advisors. The last forum for 2018 was held recently at Eden Park in Auckland.
The focus of the forum was future thinking around what health and safety practice will need to look like after 2020 from a trades, PBMC and HNZ view.
The Health and Safety teams from the PBMCs and HNZ participated in workshops where they discussed future ideas and considered what else would need to be put in place over the next few years to get there.
“It was a great way to end the year and recognise all the efforts the PBMC teams and the tradies have been doing to raise the bar with health and safety” says Mike Ashby, Principal Advisor Health & Safety.
The forum wrapped up with the sharing of Christmas gifts and acknowledgement of PBMC efforts throughout the year to ensure our tenants live in warm, dry and safe homes.
We will hold the first health and safety forum for 2019 in March next year.
