Queenstown – Health and safety in the tourism sector – REGISTER HERE

  • Date: Thursday 2 March 2023
  • Time: 9.00am-10.30am
  • Venue: Crown Plaza Hotel, 93 Beach Street, Queenstown 9300
  • Speaker: Andrew Shaw

It is crucial for PCBUs in the tourism sector to maintain a high level of health and safety, as this allows travellers to feel good about their experience and businesses to protect their reputation and guard against financial risk. Getting health and safety in the workplace wrong can result not only in substantial penalty action from WorkSafe, but also a detrimental impact on the culture of your business.  The seminar will cover:

  • Example cases of tourism operators who have been prosecuted under health and safety legislation;
  • WorkSafe guidelines and actions in the tourism sector;
  • Tourism operators’ duty holder obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015; and
  • Practical steps for tourism operators to undertake to safeguard their business from health and safety risk.

Wellington – Redundancy: getting it right in difficult economic times – REGISTER HERE

  • Date: Thursday 16 March 2023
  • Time: 12.00pm-1.30pm
  • Venue: Mövenpick Hotel, 345 The Terrace, Te Aro, Wellington 6001
  • Speakers: Andrew Shaw, Fiona McMillan, Andy Bell

With the world in a state of flux, and factors such as persistent inflation, an ongoing pandemic and supply chain constraints continuing to impact businesses, the prospect of having to make redundancies is a reality for many employers. The seminar will cover:

  • genuine reasons/test of justification;
  • procedural requirements;
  • when/how to undertake a selection process; and
  • obligations for redeployment/outplacement.

Meet the team that makes
things simple.
