Covid-19

All of NZ is currently at alert level 1.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment

Advisers guiding you through the Covid-19 alert levels

The HASANZ Register is a platform which is free to use and will help you find reliable, quality, health and safety advice. 

There are varied disciplines that together make up New Zealands health and safety workforce and to help guide you we’ve provided a summary of the areas covered by our professional member Associations.

Contact Tracing and Safety Plan

Contact Tracing

To stop any future spread of COVID-19, we need to trace the contacts of anyone who may have been exposed to COVID-19 and break the chain of transmission. Contact tracing helps us do that.

Meet your contact tracing requirements

All people on-site should sign in using either the QR code or an alternative contact tracing system. This includes employees, customers and other visitors. Make sure it’s done every day, including weekends and after hours. People who sign in with the NZ COVID Tracer app don’t need to use an alternative system.

Display your QR code poster

All workplaces and businesses legally must display an NZ COVID Tracer QR code for each location. This applies at all Alert Levels.

Your COVID-19 safety plan – what you need to think about

Under alert Level 3 all businesses that are permitted to resume operations need to have a COVID-19 safety plan that sets out how they’ll operate safely.
To help meet the requirements for Level 3 work arrangements, WorkSafe New Zealand has developed a template to help workplaces consider the risks introduced by COVID-19 and how they can mitigate them

Covid-19 Safety Plan

The purpose of the plan is to ensure the health and safety of workers and others is not put at risk from changes that are made to work arrangements because of this pandemic. We know that for some workplaces, resumption of business in a way that minimises risk to workers is going to be hard to do and this template will support them through the process of considering risk, and controlling it.
