New NZ Health & Safety legislation comes into affect in April 2016. It means positive steps towards safer work practises for us all, and also poses challenges for advertising production (including Client, Agency, Production Company AND crew) .
EVERYONE has non transferable responsibilities to ensure safe work practises for themselves and those around them on all productions.
There are significant penalties for non compliance - up to $600,000 for individuals and $5m for companies, as well as jail time.
A set can be shut down at any time if active safety compliance cannot be demonstrated.
YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOUR SAFETY RESPONSIBILITIES ARE AND HOW TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE.
New Zealand Advertising Producers Group (NZAPG) are hosting an Information Evening in cooperation with CAANZ, ANZA, Techo's Guild, Screensafe & Film Auckland to provide information to help you with safety compliance.
There will also be an update from ScreenSafe on the progress of the new Safety Code of Practise.
The new NZ Worksafe Reform Act broadens the scope of health and safety and significantly increases penalties for breaches. Most importantly, it creates a new responsible entities including "Officers" and the "Person Controlling a Business or Undertaking" (PCBU). These categories cover key people from all organisations involved in advertising screen production: Client, Agency, Producer, Production Company AND technicians and suppliers.
