Andrew Little, in Committee, to move the following amendments:
Replace clause 7(1) (lines 22 and 23 on page 8), with:
(1) The board must comprise 3 representatives appointed by the organisation recognised for the time being as the peak body representing workers, 3 representatives appointed by the organisation recognised for the time being as the peak body representing employers, and 3 representatives appointed by the Minister.
Delete clauses 7(2)(d), 7(2)(da), and 7(2)(f) (line 33 on page 8, and lines 1 and 4 on page 9).
This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Health and Safety (Pike River Implementation) Bill to ensure that the board of WorkSafe is a tripartite representative body as recommended by the Health and Safety Taskforce. This ensures that the independent voices of both workers and employers are on the governing board of WorkSafe.
