ScreenSafe leads health and safety in New Zealand screen sector

Posted Tuesday 12 Apr 2016

New Zealand's screen sector has been quick off the mark to interpret the new health and safety legislative regime with the launch of ScreenSafe's website on 31 March.

ScreenSafe is an initiative of the NZ Techos' Guild and the website marks the first stage of a multi-year, sector-wide health and safety programme to support safe workplaces for all screen sector participants and create a culture where everyone is empowered to contribute to safe work practices.

ScreenSafe's website,, has the new Health and Safety Guidelines.

With the new Act's focus is on managing risk and increasing responsibilities, the core message for the sector was that everyone is now responsible.

During April ScreenSafe will hold presentations around the country (see dates below) to discuss the new Act and the role of ScreenSafe, with representatives from Minters Ellison Rudd Watts and the NZ Film Commission.
