HSWA Compliance Campaigns
These campaigns range from fact-finding missions to understand safety within particular sectors, to campaigns that target vessels that are at risk. These inspections come at no cost to the operator.
1. Over 40% inspection campaign
This campaign was conducted during the second half of 2017 and the first half of 2018, and involved inspecting the commercial operators who scored 40% or more in their risk rating, when they first entered the Maritime Operator Safety System (MOSS).
2. Stevedore inspection campaign
Over a 12 month period, Maritime NZ investigated 24 incidents related to load failures from cranes on foreign-flagged ships. Stevedore loading logs were over-represented in ACC claims - especially in relation to musculoskeletal injuries.
3. High risk operators inspection campaign
Classified as one of New Zealand's high risk sector, the fishing sector was the focus of a targeted HSWA (Health and Safety at Work Act 2015) inspection campaign for the year 2016/2017.
