Health and Safety

The recent new legislation requires all businesses to place a renewed and ongoing focus on the health and safety of all employees.

In addition to our recruitment specialisation in H&S, Lawson Williams provides two important products to enable businesses to develop their systems and culture and to maintain compliance.

Health and Safety system audit and development

Using industry professionals we review and improve existing Health and Safety programs and systems. We can implement a complete H&S program if required which is modelled around the requirements for ACC accreditation.

This system will provide the framework for your development of compliant Health and Safety system and importantly a culture that is centred around the safety and health of your workforce.

Ministry of Justice, Criminal conviction check service

If you employ people do you police check them?

Pre-employment Ministry of Justice checks are becoming a necessary part of the recruitment process in New Zealand. Police checking your staff allows you to make an informed hiring decision about an individual and minimise the risk of experiencing expensive hiring mistakes.

Currently the standard service is taking a minimum of 28 working days to deliver a report. This causes issues when employing staff. You either wait for the check before making an offer – which means you will risk losing the candidate – or you make an offer subject to the check being acceptable.

Neither option is suitable in today’s employment market but Lawson Williams Specialist Recruitment can offer a timely and cost effective solution by providing a Ministry of Justice report in 4 working days for only $40.00.
