Health and Safety
At Zespri, it's really important to us that you and your workers are safe and well at work. It is your responsibility to look after the wellbeing of your workers.
The Health & Safety standards in this unit are mostly required by New Zealand law. As a contractor, you must make sure all the activities you are involved in meet these standards. This ensures not only your safety, but also that of our growers, visitors and the general public.
When developing your risk assessments and health safety plans you need to consider the risks relating to your people, your equipment and the site you're working on. To assist in developing your plans and assessment please refer to the Worksafe website.
