Guest speaker - James Cowan, Anderson Lloyd

In the area of Health and Safety, James acts for businesses and insurers throughout the WorkSafe NZ investigation, enforcement and prosecution processes. His recent experience includes acting for defendants in one of the first prosecutions by WorkSafe NZ for an accident that resulted in in a fatality. WorkSafe NZ charged four companies that each had overlapping H&S obligations.

James talk will include:

Outlining some practical guidance and the relevant statutory provisions from the time of a health and safety incident occurring, up to the point of a formal interview being conducted by a WorkSafe inspector:

  • Obligations in the wake of a health and safety incident
  • Insurance obligations/complications
  • WorkSafe dealings and interviews
  • WorkSafe inspector powers
  • Attending a formal interview

A high level overview of the types of formal enforcement by WorkSafe.

We look forward to seeing you there.
