OSH cosh sees Jackson stand down

New health and safety legislation due to become law in April has delivered its first high-profile changes in the industry, with Peter Jackson and Jamie Selkirk stepping down as directors of Weta Workshop.

Reported by the Dom Post, Jackson’s assistant Matt Dravitzki confirmed that Jackson would retain his holding in the company.

The new legislation, aimed at reducing serious injuries and fatalities, offers the ability to impose significant penalties including jail time on business operators and company directors.

A number of industry guilds and organisations, led by the NZ Advertising Producers Group, will come together to present a Safety Compliance Information Evening in Auckland on 9 February.
