Practice note: Community work orders and the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015

This practice note deals with community work orders made by the Youth Court under s298 of the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989 in light of the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.

Where a charge against te tamaiti is proved, the Youth Court may order that te tamaiti undertakes community work for a specified number of hours and within a specified period. The work undertaken must be performed under the supervision of the chief executive or an organisation approved by the chief executive to supervise the order.
