WorkSafe New Zealand’s new Māori cultural learning application is now available to download.

Te Kete Maruiti is an educational resource for WorkSafe staff to learn about Te Ao Māori (the Māori world). It focusses on basic teachings to support their day to day mahi (work).

Interactive features within the app include pronunciation of Māori words, maps with Māori names and iwi groups, values and principles, mihimihi/pepeha (introductions), ngā mihi (greetings), poroporoaki (farewells), whakataukī (proverbs), waiata (songs) and WorkSafe’s own haka.

One of the app’s key features is that it allows staff to input their own personal information to create a customised pepeha. WorkSafe’s staff will find this resource particularly helpful when leading, or being part of health and safety discussions that involve the local Māori community.

“Māori workers are more likely to be seriously injured at work and are overrepresented in industries with higher rates of injury and fatalities”, says WorkSafe’s National Manager Māori. “It’s important for WorkSafe staff to have on-demand access to the right tools and resources to help them engage effectively and appropriately with iwi, the Māori community, businesses and workers.”

Can't Zoom

Maps with iwi boundaries are useless on iPhone as I cannot pinch zoom or double tap zoom to view maps. The maps not zoomed are impossible to read. This travesty is worth at least an Improvement Notice according to EDM.
