June 21st to 27th is National Volunteer Week 2020, a week in which we celebrate the contribution of volunteers in New Zealand who enrich and support charitable organisations around the country.

I have always enjoyed learning new things, especially in education, so I was very lucky to fall into the perfect role 16 years ago when I came back from my OE. I started at a very small company with a huge vision, and I have been here ever since!

Since the introduction of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, concerns have been raised that the emphasis on the punitive measures of the new legislation isn’t doing anything to actually make our workplaces safer.
Experts in the industry are concerned that a fear of the consequences of failing to obey the law to the letter means that businesses are only aiming to meet the minimum Health and Safety requirements.
