1. Selection

In each edition of Safeguard we select three questions arising from material published in that edition.
Here are the current questions, which relate to the May/June 2020 edition. Feel free to respond to any or all of them.
 
An edited selection of responses will appear in the following edition.
We ask for your contact details but they are not printed, so you can speak freely!
 
One respondent will be randomly drawn to receive a prize, namely a copy of the Health & Safety Handbook 2020, published by Thomson Reuters.
 

Question Title

* 1. Sean Brady recommends the Queensland mining sector replaces LTIFR with Serious Accident Frequency Rate, defined as an injury accident requiring admission to hospital. Not only would the company be required to report it to the regulator, but as a check, so would the admitting hospital. Should NZ adopt this method of reporting? Why, or why not?

Question Title

* 2. Clare Lynn says Covid-19 should serve as a wake-up call to show the powerful effect of health on business. How has your experience of dealing with the pandemic changed your overall H&S practice?

Question Title

* 3. Bruce McLaren of Maritime NZ describes a recent HSW Act prosecution involving charges laid against an officer (as well as against the PCBU). Would a greater focus on laying charges against officers be a worthwhile strategy for WorkSafe NZ to adopt? Why, or why not?

Question Title

* 4. What is your name?

Question Title

* 5. In which town or city do you live?

Question Title
