The Port Health and Safety Leadership Group
We are a tripartite group, made up of port and stevedoring companies, unions, the Port Industry Association, Maritime NZ and WorkSafe NZ representatives, all working in partnership to drive a step change in health and safety in New Zealand ports.
He waka eke noa - a canoe which we are all in with no exception
