The Government is seeking feedback on how to reduce death and injury in the workplace ahead of planned reform to health and safety regulations, some of which are up to 40 years old.

Lees-Galloway said the paper and consultation would focus on work involving machinery, equipment, tools and structures, which were involved in 76 per cent of workplace deaths, or about 58 fatalities every year.

What would you advise? What needs to be focused on the most?

Poll: Should NZ schools have gender-neutral uniforms?

Sarah Reporter from Stuff

A new law in Wales says schools are required to have gender-neutral uniforms.

This means that while uniforms can include both skirts and pants, schools can't label these as "girls" or "boys" items.

Should NZ follow suit?

It’s not easy growing up in New Zealand today. The Salvation Army and The Warehouse Group know that life can be tough for young people, and that's why we teamed up to develop an innovative and effective youth development programme called ‘Aspire’.

Launched in 2015, thanks to seed funding received from The Warehouse Group's 2014 Suppliers Dinner and ongoing funding support from Warehouse Stationery, Aspire has helped more than 1000 young people develop the skills, confidence, knowledge and networks they need to successfully address challenges and achieve their goals.

From now until the end of July, donations from Warehouse Stationery customers will help support hundreds of at-risk teens who aspire to change their lives.

Find out more about the programme and how to donate here: www.thewarehousegroup.co.nz...

This is a stunning dining table with 6 leather chairs. Each chair covered full back and seat in quality leather and on secure castors. Each chair has 'arms' and all are super comfortable with great back support.
Table measures: 1.05metres bay 2.15metres.
Wood is Pacific Coconut - the timber resembles pattern of Honeysuckle. The chairs are in perfect condition. The table has a water mark on the surface which has lifted an area of the 'polyurethane' finish. There are tiny surface marks and there is one edge where the timber joins have moved very slightly (less than 0.25mm). Surface can be quite easily restored with a sand and re-polyurethane. Table is structurally sound.
Price is negotiable - Genuine inquirers only please.
