  • Business Feedback sought regarding proposed changes to ACC levies

    30 September 2016

    ACC is asking New Zealand businesses to share their thoughts and ideas about incentives that encourage safer workplaces, as well as changes to ACC levies, as part of a consultation process running from 21 September to 19 October 2016.  ACC is proposing a reduction of 10 percent in work levies. It has also announced a new approach to its incentive products, necessitated through changes to the ACC Scheme’s legislation as part of the new Health & Safety reforms.  Key aspects of the new approach include new injury prevention initiatives, changes to incentives, and enhancements to the Experience Rating programme where business levies are adjusted based on their claim performance.

    ACC will also remove two business incentive products in the next two years – Workplace Safety Discount (WSD) and Workplace Safety Management Practices (WSMP).  ACC’s Head of Business Customer Service Delivery, Phil Riley, says, “We’re keen to hear ideas and feedback, and work alongside businesses and WorkSafe NZ, to design solutions that encourage businesses to invest in health and safety improvements.  “In previous consultations, our customers told us that the WSD and WSMP programmes are administratively burdensome, inflexible and not tailored to their businesses. After 31 March 2017, these programmes will not accept new members, as they’ll progressively be replaced by initiatives better suited to our customers and the new Health & Safety reforms,” says Mr Riley.

    Thank Your Cleaner Day 2016

    Cleaning is one of the most important industries in the world, yet most of the people undertaking this important work are invisible to you. Every day, tens of thousands of skilled, hard working cleaning staff are onsite to ensure your premises are ready to go for the next business day. Cleaners work day, night and weekends to keep your working and living environments clean, safe and hygienic, often under the radar of normal working hours. Thank Your Cleaner Day™ recognises the hard work cleaners do and lets them know they are valued and appreciated.

    This year’s Thank Your Cleaner Day™ will be held on Wednesday October 19th and your business has the opportunity to get involved.

  • CleanNZ Expo 2016

    1 June 2016

    CleanNZ Expo and CleanSweep Awards

    If the atmosphere on the show floor was anything to go by, the CleanNZ Expo surpassed exhibitors’ expectations with a more fitting venue at the spacious ASB Showgrounds, Auckland, held 19 and 20 May. Ample room for bigger stands meant New Zealand’s leading players in the cleaning and hygiene sector could showcase a complete selection of goods including sweepers and scrubbers, a wall full of washroom dispensers, window squeegee demonstrations, backpack vacuums being modelled and an automated floor cleaning robot making its way up and down the aisle.

    The first day of the show was followed by the ‘Oscars’ style  gala dinner where the Building Service Contractors of New Zealand (BSCNZ) CleanSweep Awards in association with Staples were presented in front of more than 300 guests.

    The sophistication in our industry was once again highlighted by the innovative products and services on offer from our local and global suppliers. We are looking forward to 2018.”
