Protecting Your Team
Leading health and safety change
While it’s important to know what must be done to comply with new health and safety laws, this full-day workshop gets to the heart of how your family and employees can stay safe in their work.
Discover how to change attitudes to health and safety on your farm and create a positive health and safety culture in your business which in turn, will improve the results of formal processes.
The workshop gets to the heart of how to make changes so that farmers make it home each day to their families, reducing the emotional and financial costs of loss of life and serious injury.
Partnering with WorkSafe New Zealand and ACC, AWDT developed and piloted Protecting Your Team in 2016. Each programme is limited to 16 participants.
