ScreenSafe was established in July 2015 to support and promote Health and Safety in the New Zealand Screen Sector. Our initial focus is updating the existing Code of Practice to create a set of NZ Screen Sector Health & Safety Guidelines and to interpret the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 coming into effect from 4th April 2016.

An initiative of The Techos’ Guild, ScreenSafe is an industry-wide collaborative effort with backing from the NZFC, NZ On Air and SPADA along with other guilds, industry bodies and regional film offices. As part of this piece of work, ScreenSafe has engaged MinterEllisonRuddWatts to provide legal guidance on the interpretation of the Act.
Useful general information about the Act can be found here.

Regular updates will be provided during 2016 as work progresses on interpretation of the Act, along with the release of further guidance in addition to the existing resources already available.
