SafeClean® – Health, Safety and Environmental Management System

CrestClean understands our Health and Safety obligations. We have developed SafeClean®, a full Health, Safety and Environmental Management System that enables us to work safely, protecting our personnel, our customers and the public.

The Health and Safety at Work Act came into effect on April 4 2016. The new law will be called the Health and Safety at Work Act. It’s the most significant reform of New Zealand’s workplace Health and Safety laws in 20 years.

This new legislation affects the way all New Zealand businesses operate with regard to workplace health, safety and environment.

The Health and Safety at Work Act:

  • Puts more onus on Senior Managers and Directors to keep their workers safe.
  • Requires greater participation so workers are more involved in safety.
  • Stronger penalties, enforcement tools and court powers.

These new rules make an organisation responsible for the safety of all people entering their premises, including their own staff, their customers, and regular contractors like CrestClean.
