Hazardous Substances draft regulations

Published 17 Jan 2016

Regulations for Hazardous Substances under the new Health & Safety at Work Act are in draft form now and the MBIE are going through the process of seeking feedback from industry.

As expected the extensive document is over 500 pages of specifications and rules covering the myriad of hazardous substances we come across in the workplaces throughout NZ industry.

Another pertinent read (and a lot shorter) is the consultation document from MBIE, outlining among other things the infringement fee structure. Click here to see the MBIE consultation document.

Any submissions or feedback on these items are due by Friday 26 February 2016.
