Our April Newsletter is out today! The recent cold snap that swept across the country, leaving many without power around Auckland, has reminded us that winter is well on its way. Our Flu programme is in full swing now with our nurses working flat out vaccinating New Zealand workers. We got off to a great start this year, receiving this years updated vaccination before many other providers.
This year for the first time, TriEx has the ability to offer Nationwide provision for Flu Vaccinations. We are able to do this by expanding our Flu Voucher offering through our partnership with Green Cross Health. You can learn more about our Flu Vouchers at the link below.
As of April 4 the new Asbestos Regulations which were legislated in 2016 have come into full force. This means New Zealand businesses can now be prosecuted for not meeting their legal obligations in regards to asbestos. All businesses, where asbestos is likely to be found, must now have an Asbestos Management plan in place. You can learn more about this at the link below below.
Reducing noise induced hearing loss is a priority for WorkSafe NZ, so this is an area they’re putting a focus on currently. It’s estimated that 30% of New Zealand workers are exposed to excessive noise for at least a quarter of their working day. You can read about this at the link below below.
Lastly, TriEx GM Sarah O’Connell is scheduled to speak at the upcoming Women in Insurance Summit in Auckland this coming July. She’ll be speaking about how to overcome unconscious bias in the workplace. We also have some handy tips to stay well and healthy this winter. More on these at the link below.
