Alert: Notifications and correspondence during COVID-19 restrictions

We are operating at reduced capacity due to the COVID 19 alert level four requirements. Find out more about how to correspond and notify us during this time.

WorkSafe is seeking feedback on the proposal to revoke the approved code of practice (ACOP) for Safe Handling, Transportation and Erection of Precast Concrete (2002).

New guidance is needed:

  • to reflect the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA); and
  • to reflect current good practices for handling, transporting and erecting precast concrete elements in New Zealand workplaces.

WorkSafe is also consulting on the draft good practice guidelines (GPG) that may replace the ACOP. If you would like to comment on the draft GPG, please go to our webpage.

To comment on the proposal to revoke the ACOP, please download and complete the response form below.
