Home Time

Built around our vision that everyone who goes to work comes home healthy and safe, our Home Time campaign focuses on the concept of coming home.

About the Home Time campaign 

The Home Time campaign was designed to raise awareness about health and safety, and challenge Kiwis to make our workplaces safer and healthier for everyone.

Why do we need to talk about health and safety? 

Last year, thousands of people were injured and dozens killed in New Zealand workplaces. The time has come for us all to talk about it.

New Zealand is a great place to live, and to work. But where health and safety is concerned, there’s more work to do.

Kiwi workers are killed at a higher rate than those in Australia or the UK. That has a real cost, and none heavier than on a family that relies on a loved one.

For a country that’s always prided itself on looking out for one another…it’s time we did.

All New Zealanders who go to work every day, no matter industry they are in or job they do, should be able to return home healthy and safe. That’s what we’re working for.

Use your mouth – it’s the best safety gear you’ve got. If you spot something unsafe or unhealthy, start talking.
