WorkSafe New Zealand Requirements – Bowling Clubs. URGENT ATTENTION REQUIRED!
This is a reminder to all clubs who have not yet  done the following:

Please see attached an important memo from Bowls NZ CEO Mark Cameron which outlines the requirement of clubs to take action to self-assess and report against the legal requirements of their green keeping shed(s). The attached compliance document will need to be printed and then used to complete the self-assessment.

The Bowling Club Agrichemical Management Warrant of Fitness will assist  your club to identify all the legal requirements, and any identify if there are any issues.

(i)     undertake the self-assessment process and fix any problems that are apparent, and
(ii)   complete and return (scan & email or post) the self-assessment
document to Steve Beel (details below) showing that the club complies in ALL facets of agrichemical management

The attached memo also lists key people who can be contacted to answer any questions or otherwise assist you to complete this assessment. If your club does not have any chemicals / sprays / fertilisers, please complete the self-assessment form accordingly and provide an explanation as to why this is the case; e.g. Artificial green(s) / no chemicals / sprays / fertiliser stored at the club / other.
