Directors Duties and Liabilities under the New Health & Safety Act
New Zealand’s health and safety laws have undergone a major overhaul with the new Act coming into effect in mid 2015. The consequences of failing to comply with the new regulations are significant. Companies face fines of up to $3 million and individuals falling into the new PCBU category can be held personally liable, with potential fines of up to $600,000 and/or 5 years in prison.
