    For this, the Act establishes Te Matawai as an independent statutory entity to provide leadership on behalf of iwi and Maori in their role as kaitiaki of the Maori language. It provides for Te Matawai and the Crown to develop Maori language strategies to support the revitalisation of the Maori language, including by promoting an increase in the number of people speaking the Maori language and improving their fluency in that language. Finally, it adjusts the functions of Te Taura Whiri, Te Reo Whakapuaki Irirangi, and the Maori Television Service and disestablishes Te Putahi Paoho.

    A key aspect of the Bill is the creation of a new duty holder, known as a Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU). A "worker" is defined as a person who carries out work in any capacity for a PCBU, including work as an employee, a contractor or subcontractor, an employee of a contractor or subcontractor or an employee of a labour hire company who has been assigned to work for the PCBU, an outworker, an apprentice or trainee, a person gaining work experience or undertaking a work trial, a volunteer or a person of a prescribed class. The Act replaces the current standard under the HSE Act ("All Practicable Steps") with a new "reasonably practicable" standard. "Reasonably practicable" is defined as:

    "...that which is, or was, at a particular time, reasonably able to be done in relation to ensuring health and safety, taking into account and weighing up all relevant matters, including:
    - the likelihood of the hazard or the risk concerned occurring;
    - the degree of harm that might result from the hazard or risk;
    what the person concerned knows, or ought reasonably to know, about
    - the hazard or risk; and
    - ways of eliminating or minimising the risk;
    the availability and suitability of ways to eliminate or minimise the risk; and
    after assessing the extent of the risk and available ways of eliminating or minimising the risk, the cost associated with available ways of eliminating or minimising the risk, including whether the cost is grossly disproportionate to the risk."
