Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA) Northern - The Risk Roadshow

The Risk Roadshow

The right health and safety tools for managing risk in your workplace

This half-day seminar provides answers to the complexities of managing workplace risk including dealing with hazardous substances, understanding worker competency, safe use of machinery and conducting health and safety audits. These four topics relate to significant issues faced by business in today’s heavily regulated environment. Let us provide guidance and affordable solutions to ensure your workers are safe and your business is protected.

You have heard enough about changing legislation and regulations; it’s time now to get the tools that matter to you and your business.

At this seminar we will focus on: 

The view of knowing when a worker can perform their job safely has evolved. The Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 and the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 are redefining what competency means. This session will look at:
  • What is the new view of competency
  • How can I tell if a worker is competent to do their job safely
  • Are my current safe systems of work (SOPs, JSAs etc) fit for purpose
The ACC WSMP Audit was frequently used as an independent assurance and verification of the businesses health and safety system. With the end of this levy saving programme, the need for organisations to show independent audited evidence of their health and safety system remains. This session will look at:
  • The changing landscape of audit standards
  • Do audit standards mean good practice
  • What effect will ISO 45001 have on health and safety systems management
  • How the EMA and Telarc M-Safe Audit programme benefits business
Hazardous Substances
The Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 have evolved on how the risks of hazardous substances are to be managed. This session will look at:
  • Is the way of managing these risks dependent on exceeding the threshold limits
  • When do the regulations become good practice
  • Understanding the importance of assessing the acute and chronic risks of hazardous substances
  • Why is having competent workers so important with hazardous substances
  • How to make SDS (Safety Data Sheets) readable, engaging and useful for workers
Machinery Safety
Managing machinery risks have been part of our legislative framework for nearly 70 years (Machinery Act 1950). Yet, employers and manufacturers are still not getting it right, with fatalities, amputations and injuries from machinery still a reality for too many New Zealand workers. This session will look at:
  • What 'reasonably practicable' looks like for managing machinery risks
  • Expectation of guarding for different operational use
  • Understanding the importance of assessing the acute and chronic risks of machinery
  • Pragmatic approach for machinery lifecycle management
  • The importance and value from machinery safety reviews to AS/NZS4024
