    We want to work together to create a modern, inclusive, and forward-thinking education system. One that will set our country up for the future. One that meets the needs of all our students - and their teachers. And one that will guide learning in New Zealand for generations to come. 


    Week That Was: Mahi for the future!

    Our Week That Was series gives you a round-up of all the achievements, announcements, and other political goings-on around Parliament and across the country over the past week. We're proud of all we're doing to make New Zealand a great place to live - and we want to share it with you!

New online tool for health and safety policy

· August 20, 2018

A new online resource will enable small businesses to create health and wellbeing policies quickly and easily, through the business.govt.nz website.

“The online Workplace Policy Builder makes it easy for small businesses to tailor policies to the individual circumstances of their workplaces,” says Small Business Minister Stuart Nash.

“Small businesses who lack in-house expertise can avoid the hassle of drawing up a policy from scratch by using this new online tool. It offers them the assurance that their policies will comply with current law.

“We created the Health and Wellbeing policy to help small businesses create a healthy, safe and positive working environment for their staff.

“A good working environment is good for business. Workplaces are more likely to have higher productivity and sales, more creativity and improved customer satisfaction. 

The new policy was developed in association with the Health Promotion Agency, and adds to the existing policies in the Workplace Policy Builder. These include policies for flexible work practices, IT and social media, annual leave and holidays. More policies are in development.

Workplace Policy Builder is part of a suite of free online tools from business.govt.nz that help making running a small business easier for business owners and managers.

Other tools include the recently launched Choose Business Structure tool and Employment Agreement Builder.  An estimated half a million employment agreements have been created based on the Employment Agreement Builder since it launched in April 2016.
