Site-Specific Safety Plan (SSSP)-old

Site Safe together with industry have launched new targeted colour coded SSSP guides. From May 2020 this page will be replaced with the new blue SSSP forms, or access the new forms now here

If you're using the current SSSP forms, don't panic! This page will remain until May 2020. 

The SSSP is an agreement between businesses working on a specific site that determines how health and safety will be managed. When used correctly, it ensures that relevant site information is regularly updated and safety is monitored, and will help all businesses involved comply with New Zealand's Health and Safety at Work Act (2015).

Whilst the SSSP is made up of a number of forms, the most important document is the agreement itself, and it's this part that must be completed first. Read more about the SSSP Agreement here.
