The National Occupational Health and Safety Advisory Committee (NOHSAC) was established in 2003 to provide independent advice directly to the Minister of Labour on major occupational health and safety issues in New Zealand.

The Committee advised the Minister on measures that would deliver the greatest benefit for the prevention of occupational injury and disease, and developed an evidence-based approach to occupational health and safety issues.

NOHSAC reports

NOHSAC academics and professional researchers produced comprehensive reports to inform important policy issues affecting all workers. Research included the burden of occupational disease and injury, the economic and social costs and surveillance of occupational disease and injury, surveillance and control of workplace exposures, and a national profile of occupational health and safety in New Zealand.
