Finsec leader appointed to government’s new health and safety council

Andrew Casidy and Carol BeaumontMinister of Labour, Ruth Dyson, has this week appointed Finsec’s General Secretary, Andrew Casidy, to the new Workplace Health and Safety Council.

He joins CTU Secretary, Carol Beaumont (both pictured), occupational health and safety manager from the Northern Employers and Manufacturers Association, Paul Jarvie, and 2003 Pacific Business Leader of the Year, Paul Raea.

The Council will provide advice to the government on workplace health and safety matters of national and international significance. It will also advise on ways to progress the implementation of the Workplace Health and Safety Strategy. Casidy believes that workplace health and safety is a vitally important issue, not just for workers in jobs that have traditionally been seen as dangerous or risky, but also for many office workers facing the dangers of workplace stress, and OOS.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge. We’ve got a big job to seamlessly integrate the existing laws on workplace health and safety and all the other bits and pieces that protect workers, but if its done right it can be good for business, in terms of productivity as well as for workers’ safety.”
