The eruption on Whakaari / White Island,has prompted a review of the adventure activity regulations and Workplace Relations and Safety Minister Michael Wood last month unveiled a set of proposals to tighten them up.
At the moment, the regulatory regime does not explicitly address the risks that come from natural hazards like rockfalls, water surges, flooding, eruptions and avalanches.
That means there is not enough assurance that all operators are managing these risks well, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) proposal document states. — Sarah Robson - RNZ
Enough of the teasers. We need the tale told in a paragraph. — Peter Bateman

In finding that the dismissal was justified, the authority rejected the applicant’s argument that their stance on vaccination “does not impact any other person in the workplace”.
The authority held that this was unsustainable given that every employee has an obligation under the Health and Safety at Work Act to take “reasonable care that his or her acts, or omissions do not adversely affect the health and safety of others”. — Susan Hornsby-Geluk
