Your family want you home happy and safe at the end of the day

Posted by CEO Blog on 30 March 2016 |

ACC and WorkSafe New Zealand recently launched a series of television advertisements centred on health and safety in the work place.

We should rename this season as the season to “RE”! REfresh, REnew, REinvent, REvise, REflect, RE-energise, REbalance, REassess….. get the picture? However you choose to celebrate and take time out, I hope you enjoy the break. When you come back next year I’ll be asking for your help on a few important pieces of work.
