Better communication for workplace safety
Better communication is needed for workplace safety, says BusinessNZ.
A recent survey of Auckland companies showed many had safety rules that were hard to understand.
Most of the 466 employees surveyed could not fully understand their company’s safety rules or accurately fill out hazard report forms.
BusinessNZ Chief Executive Phil O’Reilly said the findings showed the need for simpler, clearer workplace communication.
“New Zealand’s workplace accident rate is high by international standards and part of the reason for this is inability to understand safety rules.
“More work is needed to ensure that critical company information is clearly conveyed.”
