Health & Safety Management System

Health & Safety Management System

The Health and Safety Management System is a tool used to outline the different levels of health and safety within Surf Life Saving New Zealand. While all operational members of Surf Life Saving are accountable to aspects of health and safety in different environments, the degree of understanding is varied - very few are expected to know it all.

This model should assist with the development and understanding of what health and safety content needs to be known by individuals at each level, as well as who makes up each group of people based on the SLS awards they hold and/or roles they are in.
