Safetree: Covid-19 protocols - endorsed by WorkSafe

Wednesday 22 Apr 2020

Forest industry Covid-19 protocols - endorsed by WorkSafe - Fiona Ewing from Safetree has a message for everyone in our industry heading back to work.

She says, "I'm pleased to be able to announce that WorkSafe has formally endorsed our Covid-19 industry guidance, after clarifying a number of points (see below for details)."

This endorsed guidance can now be downloaded from the Safetree website.

WorkSafe has also just published information on what all New Zealand businesses need to think about when planning to return to work. See the WorkSafe website.

It is great to have this high-level information from the Regulator, as well as the Regulator's endorsement for our industry-specific guidance. It will give forestry businesses greater confidence that they are doing the right things to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed to creating our guidance. It is an excellent example of pan-industry work to protect the health and safety of our people.

Share this endorsed guidance widely with people in your organisation, supply chain and industry networks, and work together to effectively implement these protocols. Please delete any copies of the original guidance that was published on Friday April 17 to ensure people are working from the endorsed version.
