New ‘Safe Plus’ self-assessment tool from Worksafe

SafePlus is a new, voluntary, health and safety performance improvement toolkit for businesses. It defines what good health and safety looks like, above minimum legal compliance. SafePlus is a performance improvement initiative that is not a traditional compliance audit type product.

SafePlus is a joint initiative developed by WorkSafe New Zealand, ACC and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).

Online self-assessment tool coming soon

Available mid 2018, the SafePlus Online Self-Assessment Tool will help you identify gaps in your health and safety performance, and provide guidance and advice on how to improve.

The Online Self-Assessment Tool will be free for any business to use. The first version is being designed for small to medium sized businesses, with further development planned to tailor for larger and/or higher risk sector businesses.

The information you enter into the tool is secure, and is only available to the Government in an anonymous and summarised format, maintaining your commercial privacy.

Take a look at our general overview of the SafePlus Onsite Assessment and Advisory Service:

Defining what good health and safety looks like

  • SafePlus is made up of 10 performance requirements fundamental to achieving good health and safety performance.
  • These are organised into three core areas: leadership, worker engagement, and risk management – and are underpinned by continuous improvement. Each performance requirement has a maturity scale that measures a business’s performance initially and over time.
