As an Agricultural Contracting business we were becoming increasingly aware of our responsibilities surrounding new OSH rules and regulations. We decided to pursue further training from an industry professional and we were approached by John Franklin’s company Easy Safety.

John has been working with our team for over four years now and has proved invaluable to us. One of our major concerns was the complexity of OSH requirements generally and how we were going to implement these in a straightforward manner. He has simplified this process for us by creating a comprehensive Health and Safety Management Plan Schedule.

This plan is well written, easy to follow, and specifically structured for our business.

To compliment this plan John is always available for regular meetings with all staff to make sure we are on track with any new OSH issues or requirements. He has advised us and been actively involved in all aspects of our training requirements including accident reporting and recording, fire safety, and pre-emptive hazard control to name a few.

John also undertakes all our driver training instruction leading to NZQA unit standard achievement. We have benefited from John’s prior experience in the contracting industry and know that with his help we are now in a place where we have mitigated our risk as much as possible.

With John moving away from a paper based system to the new Active Online Health and Safety System, we feel confident we will be informed and guided effectively through any changes within Health and Safety. This has encouraged us to have complete peace of mind on this matter.
