COVID-19 Protocols


As an industry, we’ve come together to develop a framework to keep our workers, their whānau and the wider community healthy and safe by preventing the spread of COVID-19.

This framework has been developed in accordance with government advice and is designed to sit alongside your usual health and safety controls. 

The framework consists of:

  • an overarching standard with high-level principles that must be adhered to
  • more detailed protocols providing ‘how to’ guidance which can then be adapted on a site by site basis. 

The protocols are a living document which will be kept updated by a working party of health and safety practitioners from across industry. If you have any questions or suggestions about the protocols, please complete the Ask an Advisor form on the Site Safe website.
