Health & Safety Act –
A Starter Pack to get you going

Sample ChartsWith the new Health & Safety in the Workplace Act coming into force on 4 April this year, many companies will be looking to upgrade their health & safety workplace practices and policies.

The Act has a high requirement for documentation of workplace hazards and what is being done to eliminate or minimise them, along with records of staff safety meetings and decisions etc.

There is also a requirement for companies to have in place emergency procedures and policies, again all of which have to be documented.

Reference Publishing has developed a Starter Pack to help companies get up to speed on most of these matters. It comprises a set of forms and charts which provide a framework on which a general health and safety policy can be built. It also provides background information and a suggested schedule which can be followed to get the most important things in place in a step by step manner.

This website now also offers a quality range of Safety Signs on 2mm thick PVC sheet. Self adhesive labels are also available. Purchasers of the Starter Pack receive a discount code giving them a 20% discount off sign orders for a limited period.

Trade Lists On-Line

Trade Lists On-Line (TLO) -- see button at top of this screen, is an on-line database of plants designed to be an extension to the NZ Nursery Register and to be used in conjunction with that publication. The Register indexes plants by genera, TLO goes down to varietal level.
Reference Publishing has combined several of its databases, including two which underpin the Nursery Register, to create the new resource, which contains almost 50,000 plant entries. Many of the plants have descriptions of their form, habit, uses, features, attributes, colours, requirements etc, as supplied by the nurseries which grow them.
The database is available, by password access, to all buyers of the current edition of the Nursery Register, or by direct subscription. Searchers can find plants by name or attributes.
Advertising options are available, including picture ads that pop-up alongside specific plants or products. Companies can also have a linked ‘feature page’ with words and pictures about themselves and their products. Whenever their name comes up in a search, this feature page can be opened by the viewer. It can have links to the company’s own website, to specific pages on supplier websites for which the company might be an agent, or to on-line promotion or instruction videos.
Companies can have their trade or availability lists attached to their company name as pdfs and regularly updated.
Reference Publishing can also turn existing printed plant or product catalogues into electronic flip-books that can be posted on the TLO site and made available to searchers.  There will be a facility where companies can post specials, ends of lines etc.
For more information phone Reference Publishing (09) 358-2749.
